TRUEX CREW CHIEF TO APPEAL?
While not yet official, it appears as if suspended crew chief Kevin Manion will appeal his six-race suspension suffered in the wake of a failed inspection last week in Daytona.
Various reports have Manion and Gary Putnum -- the #1 car chief suspended for the same violations which put driver Martin Truex Jr. in an insurmountable points hole -- working in the garage in preparation for this Saturday night's race at Chicagoland Speedway.
Per NASCAR rules, personnel are not permitted at the track while they are serving their suspension. However, personnel who have filed an appeal are permitted to continue with their on-the-track responsibilities until said appeal is heard and ruled upon.
