Stenhouse Crew Chief Mike Kelley Fined for Homestead Suspension Issue

While Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. avoided penalty after Sunday’s race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, his crew chief Mike Kelley was fined $50,000 on Thursday by NASCAR for unapproved suspension parts that were confiscated during pre-qualifying inspection last weekend.

NASCAR determined that the violations were a P3 level penalty, which is outlined in section 12.3 of the NASCAR rule book as being “between serious and intermediate in nature.”

Kelley and car chief Patrick Magee were also placed on six months probation until June of next year.

Stenhouse was able to maintain his 27th-place finish in the final Sprint Cup Series standings.
