Two of NASCAR’s biggest names just got hit with some of the sport’s biggest fines of all-time. Driver Denny Hamlin and owner Joe Gibbs were hit with the largest penalty ever imposed by NASCAR on Tuesday.

The penalties come on the heels of Sunday’s race at The Brickyard 400 in Indianapolis. Hamlin’s No. 11 finished third in Indy, but was found to have violations regarding rear firewall block-off plates. NASCAR requires firewalls to be sealed to prevent airflow from inside the tire to outside of it.

NASCAR took 75 driver championship points from Hamlin and took 75 owner points from Gibbs. Hamlin’s crew chief Darian Grubb was fined $125,000 and suspended for six weeks.

Gibbs Racing has indicated that it will appeal the ruling.
