The Joe Gibbs Racing teams of #18-Kyle Busch, #11-Denny Hamlin and #20-Joey Logano all face possible penalties after an issue was discovered in inspection Friday morning at Michigan before practice began. John Darby, Cup series director, said that all three Gibbs cars had oil pans that had not been submitted for approval before competition. "We had them pull (those) off and put what we're accustomed to, what has been submitted back on their cars,'' Darby said. All three teams face possible penalties for the infraction. "Chances are great (a penalty) wouldn't involve points,'' Darby said

All I'm going to say about Gibbs car's oil pan is that we had 100 point penalty for a flared left front fender that never went on track. - JG

what a load of BS from the Gibbs garage, no points penalty?

The point system is different now so 100 points would be way too much. A 25 point penalty would be about equivalent to what jeff gordon and jimmie johnsons teams got at infineon in 2007. There will be a, penalty for the 20 and 11, the 18 got penalized last week

I know the points are different now, did the 18 lose points for the oil pan? for some reason i thought that was a different penalty

well he lost 6 points for being too low, and they related that to the oil pan
