CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — NASCAR has fined Nelson Piquet Jr. $10,000 and ordered him to attend sensitivity training for using an anti-gay slur on social media.

The Nationwide Series driver posted the remark on Instagram Sept. 25 in a post that has since been deleted.

NASCAR also penalized Penske Racing because Joey Logano's race-winning Nationwide car at Dover failed post-race inspection on Saturday.

Crew chief Jeremy Bullins was fined $10,000 and team owner Roger Penske docked six championship car owner points because the car was too low.
