Matt Kenseth Penalty Upheld by National Motorsports Appeals Panel
CONCORD, N.C. — A three-member panel upheld behavioral penalties today. The Matt Kenseth penalty upheld by Nationals Motorsports on Thursday, keeping him sidelined for the next two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races.
The National Motorsports Appeals Panel heard the appeal at the NASCAR Research & Development Center. Ultimately, the ruling was that Kenseth did not provide sufficient evidence to overturn his suspension or probation. The penalty was issued for his on-track incident last weekend with rival Joey Logano. The appeal was denied after two appeals and the penalty now officially remains in full.
