CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

Penske Racing is reaching deep into its bench after NASCAR suspended seven of its employees.

NASCAR's chief appellate officer reduced the suspensions from six points races to two and the All-Star race. The suspensions begin this weekend at Darlington.

Penske vice president of operations Mike Nelson will replace Travis Geisler as competition director.

Test team manager Kevin Buskirk will replace Paul Wolfe as defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski's crew chief. Jonathan Hassler will be race engineer and Nick Hensley will be car chief.

Race engineer Steve Reis will replace Todd Gordon as Joey Logano's crew chief. But Nationwide Series crew chief Greg Erwin will call the races for Logano. Ben Atkins will be race engineer and Jeffery Thousand will be car chief.
