DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The No. 99 team that competes in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West has been penalized as a result of rules violations committed Saturday at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway.

The team was found to be in violation of Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing) and 20C-5.10.1A (unapproved modifications to the main body of the NASCAR-approved “Spec Engine” carburetor) of the 2014 NASCAR rule book.

Driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr., a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series regular, received a reduction of 30 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West driver points.

Duane Knorr, the crew chief of car No. 99, has been suspended for three NASCAR K&N Pro Series West points events and fined $3,500.

Bill McAnally, owner of car No. 99, has received a reduction of 30 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West owner points.

The violations were discovered during post-race inspection on June 21 and constitute a penalty level five in the NASCAR Deterrence System.
