The hearing has been rescheduled for Team Penske’s final appeal of postrace penalties to Brad Keselowski’s after the March 19 race at Phoenix Raceway.

Final Appeals Officer Bryan Moss will hear the case Wednesday at 6 p.m. after initially being slated to preside on Tuesday at 9 a.m

Crew chief Paul Wolfe was suspended for three races and fined $65,000, and Keselowski and the No. 2 Ford team were docked 35 points for failing the Laser Inspection System after a fifth place at Phoenix.

Wolfe’s suspension has been deferred by NASCAR during the appeal. He will work today’s postponed race at Bristol Motor Speedway. Wolfe sat out Fontana but returned at Martinsville Speedway (where Keselowski won) and at Texas Motor Speedway as the team appealed.

The National Motorsports Appeals Panel upheld NASCAR’s penalty after an April 12 hearing.

If Moss denies Penske’s appeal, Wolfe would miss the races at Richmond International Raceway and Talladega Superspeedway.
