CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- NASCAR has issued four-week suspensions to the crew chiefs and car chiefs for Martin Truex Jr., David Reutimann and Bobby Labonte.

Chad Johnson, Rodney Childers and Frank Kerr also were fined $50,000 each, and the drivers docked 25 points apiece. The penalties are from illegal windshields discovered during Friday inspection at Talladega Superspeedway. NASCAR says they did not have the appropriate thickness.

Also suspended were car chiefs Steve Channing, Raymond Fox and Anthony Lunders.

The windshields were never used in competition.

The teams say they will not appeal the penalties.
