Crew chief to sit out Tal­ladega

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

CHAR­LOTTE, N.C. — Brad Ke­selowski will not have crew chief Paul Wolfe this week­end at Tal­ladega Su­per­speed­way as he serves part of a sus­pen­sion Team Penske has been ap­peal­ing.

Ke­selowski’s No. 2 team was pe­nal­ized for in­frac­tions at the March 19 race at Phoenix. Wolfe was sus­pended for three races, but Penske has ap­pealed and Wolfe has only missed one race.

Team Penske has a fi­nal ap­peal of the penal­ties sched­uled for Tues­day, but the team de­cided Wolfe would skip Tal­ladega as a pre­ven­tive move. Should the team lose the ap­peal, Wolfe would only have to miss the next race at Kansas. He would be cleared to return for the All-Star race and Coca-Cola 600 at Char­lotte.

Team Penske says en­gi­neer Brian Wilson will re­place Wolfe at Tal­ladega.
