NASCAR levied the penalties to the team after Talladega Superspeedway due to a modification to a single-source part on the No. 4, it said.
Despite the appeal, team engineer Stephen Doran will be the crew chief for Harvick at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL this weekend.
Should SHR lose its appeal, crew chief Rodney Childers would still be able to return to the team at the season finale at Phoenix Raceway.
Harvick has scored two wins, seven top fives and 14 top 10s in 2022. Following the points penalty, he sits 16th in points, having already been eliminated from title contention after the playoffs’ Round of 16.
