DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – NASCAR has penalized Matt Tifft's No. 89 team that competes in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West for rules violations last weekend at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah.

The No. 89 Chevrolet was found to be in violation of Section 20C-12.3T of the NASCAR rule book, which reads - in part - "All shock absorbers must compress or extend a distance of six inches in a time span of (90 seconds) or less with the external adjustment set in any position."  Shock travel on Tifft's car exceeded the maximum time limit during post-race inspection following the team's fifth-place finish on Sept. 14.

Crew chief Rob Dixon has been fined $2,500 and suspended from NASCAR until its paid.  Tifft and Dixon, the car owner, have each been docked 12 championship points.
