NEMCO Motorsports owner, Crew Chief penalized for NASCAR Busch Series infraction at Texas.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 31, 2003) -- NEMCO Motorsports owner Andrea Nemechek was fined $25,000 and crew chief Eric Phillips received a two-race suspension and a $5,000 fine for a rule violation discovered during post-race inspection of Saturday's NASCAR Busch Series race at Texas Motor Speedway, NASCAR officials announced today.

The No. 87 Chevrolet of NEMCO Motorsports driven by Joe Nemechek was found to have a left front spring coil that was in violation of Rule 12.1-A.9 of the NASCAR Busch Series Rule Book: "... All coils must be evenly spaced after the first coil on the closed end of the spring." The illegal spring also violated Rule 12-4-A: "Actions detrimental to stock car racing."

Phillips will serve a two-race suspension that will force him to miss this week's NASCAR Busch Series race at Talladega Superspeedway and the April 12 series event at Nashville Superspeedway. He also is suspended from participating in any other NASCAR events through April 16.
