Following the race at Dover Sunday, the No. 2 of Brad Keselowski failed post-race inspection. The car was found too low during the inspection process, after the race. This comes on the heels of crew chief Paul Wolfe’s return to top the pit box after a three-week suspension from penalties at Texas Motor Speedway earlier this year.

Martin Truex Jr. failed post-race inspection earlier this year for his car being too low at Texas and resulted inĀ a six-point penalty. Brad Keselowski’s team could be facing the same penalty.

Typically NASCARĀ probation does not factor into penalties from a different situation unless the circumstances are similar. Brad Keselowski’s team penaltiesĀ at Texas were for illegal parts. Therefore, Wolfe’s current probation will not be aĀ factor in the penalty phase this week.

NASCAR’s decision on possible penalties for the No. 2 team will most likely come on Tuesday. If Brad Keselowski is docked six-points, his team would drop from eighth to tenth in the point standings. That would leave him eight points ahead of Jeff Gordon.
