On Tuesday, NASCAR released Matt Kenseth’s penalty for his role in the wreck with Joey Logano on Sunday.

NASCAR officials suspended Matt Kenseth for 2 races and placed him on probation for six months. NASCAR did not dock Kenseth or Joe Gibbs Racing any points.

Joe Gibbs racing immediately released a statement that they would appeal this punishment.
