NASCAR has handed down severe penalties to Michael Waltrip Racing that allow Ryan Newman to replace Martin Truex Jr. in the Chase for the championship.

The punishment is a result of MWR teammate Clint Bowyer intentionally spinning with seven laps remaining, causing a caution that led to Newman dropping from first to third in Saturday’s race at Richmond.

Michael Waltrip Racing was fined $300,000, general manager Ty Norris was suspended indefinitely and Truex, Bowyer and Brian Vickers were docked 50 points, dropping Truex to 17th in the Sprint Cup standings.
