Berrier To Appeal

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. - GM Goodwrench crew chief Todd Berrier will appeal his two race suspension and join the team once again for this weekend's Banquet 400 at Kansas Speedway.

During post-qualifying inspection last Friday at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway, the No. 29 was found to have an unapproved aerodynamic modification and an unapproved fuel cell vent mounting -- violations of Section 12-4-A (actions detrimental to stock car racing) and 12-4-Q (car, car parts, components, and/or equipment that do not conform to NASCAR rules) in the series rule book.

"After several discussions with the crew of the No. 29 team, we have decided to appeal NASCAR's ruling," said Richard Childress, president and CEO of Richard Childress Racing. "We feel we have a responsibility to GM Goodwrench and all of our sponsors, as well as all of our fans, to stand up for what we think is right. Regardless of the outcome, we can't let it get in the way of what the No. 29 team is trying to accomplish this season. The goal is to finish 11th in the point standings. That's where they are now and that will remain their focus."
