KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Kyle Larson's appeal of a rules violation from last week's race at Talladega was denied Friday, a 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 on damaged vehicles.
