Matt Kenseth pleased at appeals panel decision
Kenseth's points penalty was reduced from 50 to 12, crew chief Jason Ratcliff's suspension was reduced from six weeks to one (which he'll serve this weekend), Kenseth's Kansas win will count toward the Chase again and Gibbs' ability to collect owner points was restored.
Kenseth praised the appeals panel for looking at all the facts and said they "got it pretty right."
"You know, for some reason, I had a pretty good feeling about Wednesday," Kenseth said. "I didn't know if we would have gotten a reduction that much, but I felt more confident than any other appeal I've ever heard about.
