DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Michael Waltrip will race on Thursday — with his tail between his legs — in a backup No. 55 car for the Gatorade Duel, provided it passes inspection before the first race.

But Waltrip will be racing without crew chief David Hyder or Michael Waltrip Racing VP of competition Bobby Kennedy.

Penalties at a glance

Docked 100 driver and owner points
Michael Waltrip's qualifying time disallowed
Michael Waltrip's crew chief, David Hyder, ejected and suspended indefinitely, fined $100,000.
Michael Waltrip Racing's VP of competition, Bobby Kennedy, ejected and suspended indefinitely.

I think Toyota will be fine, even with a little bit of bad press. There was hardly any word of anything negative during today's Daytona race other than they didn't finish well. There is still an entire season full of races ahead of them.

Nah, it was more along the lines of them using an "additive" to their fuel as well as illegal modifications to the intake.
