KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Kyle Larson's appeal of a rules violation from last week's race at Talladega was denied Friday, a big blow to the Chip Ganassi Racing driver's chances of advancing in NASCAR's playoffs.

Larson was docked 10 points, crew chief Chad Johnston fined $25,000 and car chief David Bryant was suspended for Sunday's race at Kansas Speedway after officials determined the team used unapproved metal tabs in violation of NASCAR's policy for repairing damaged vehicles.

The penalty dropped Larson from 26 points behind the playoff cutoff to 36 points, meaning the elimination race at Kansas to trim the field to eight is practically a must-win for him.
