NASCAR has fined Hendrick Motorsports $100,000 due to the organization spending too much time in the wind tunnel, NASCAR announced Sept. 24.
The team has also been docked 10 hours of wind tunnel time in 2021.
Next year, the team will be allowed 70 hours of wind tunnel time instead of the normal 80 hours.
The team will not appeal the penalty.
Hendrick drivers Chase Elliott and Alex Bowman are still in contention for the 2020 championship via the Round of 12. William Byron was eliminated in the Round of 16, while Jimmie Johnson did not qualify for the playoffs this year.
