MARTINSVILLE, Va. - Matt Kenseth's DeWalt crew members who ran out on the track to attend to the No. 17 Ford during the final practice session were summoned to the NASCAR trailer and reprimanded.

After the red flag was thrown in practice, two crew members went out to survey the car.

"They asked the officials if they would be able to go out there and the official said they could go, but I guess that's a no-no," said crew chief Robbie Reiser.

Kenseth's Ford was stopped in Turn 2 after a tire went down, but according to Reiser they had brake issues.

"It looks like maybe we had a brake failure ore something, I don't really know," said Reiser. "The tire is flat and we've got some broken parts, so we've got to go take a look at what happened."

Kenseth, who will start 16th in the DIRECTV 500, was 10th fastest in the final session. His fast lap came on his 43rd of 45 laps before having the problem.

Besides the broken parts, Kenseth's No. 17 Ford was towed back to the garage with minimal damage.

The crew member's hardcards were not taken away.
