NASCAR has approved the postponement of the four-race suspension issued to No. 34 Front Row Motorsports Crew Chief Blake Harris pending an appeal.

With this decision,

Harris may serve as the chief of crew for Michael McDowell at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway this weekend.

On Tuesday, NASCAR issued L2 penalties and deducted 100 owner points, 100 driver points

And 10 NASCAR playoff points point to the No. 34 team for "modifying single source supplied portions."

In addition to his previous four-race suspension, Harris was also fined $100,000.

These restrictions came after a NASCAR Cup Series race at Pocono Raceway last weekend.

McDowell credited with finishing sixth behind Denny Hamlin

and Kyle Bush - who initially claimed first and second -

were disqualified for failing a technical inspection after the race.

The car number 34 was taken for surprise inspection after the race.

Before his 100-point cut, McDowell was right out of the run for the playoffs in 20th place.

Now they are in 26th place.

McDowell and the number 34 team will race in the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard on Sunday.
