Brad Keselowski fails postrace measurements at Michigan

BROOKLYN, Mich. -- The third-place car of Brad Keselowski failed postrace measurements following the Sprint Cup race on Sunday at Michigan International Speedway.

The typical penalty for the violation has been a 15-point deduction for the driver and a $25,000 fine to the crew chief, but NASCAR won't comment on potential penalties until they are announced, which typically is the Wednesday following a race. The 15-point penalty is insignificant to Keselowski, who sits second in the standings by 50 points and whose four wins this year have him locked into NASCAR's postseason Chase for the Sprint Cup.

The Team Penske car failed the inspection station that measures tire camber, axle housing, alignment, rocker panels and the main frame rail.

All cars go through that inspection station prior to the race. The top-five cars -- plus any other cars chosen by NASCAR -- also go through it after the race.

Keselowski's team had no comment.
