Racing Notes


Crew chief Chad Knaus lost his appeal of a six-race suspension Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean the fight is over.

Hendrick Motorsports immediately announced plans to take their argument to the highest level, the National Stock Car Racing Chief Appellate Officer.

Knaus and car chief Ron Malec were suspended for six races and fined $100,000, while their driver, Jimmie Johnson, was docked 25 points for an unapproved modification to the area between the roof and the trunk deck.
