NASCAR penalizes Premium Motorsports for unattached weight

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – NASCAR has penalized Premium Motorsports because an unattached weight fell off the car during practice last weekend at Indianapolis.

The P3 penalty against the team Timmy Hill drove for last weekend was issued Wednesday.

Crew chief Scott Eggleston was fined $25,000. He and car chief Kevin Eagle were also suspended for this weekend’s Sprint Cup race at Pocono and placed on probation through Dec. 31.

Team owner Mike Curb was penalized 15 championship car owner points.

Hill has driven the car for the last two Sprint Cup races. He replaced Josh Wise, who left the team after the race at Kentucky three weeks ago.
