Brian Lawdermilk/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) -- NASCAR has penalized Premium Motorsports' No. 98 Ford team for a violation last weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

NASCAR says the car lost a piece of tungsten during a Friday practice, resulting in a violation for failure to properly attach weight.

Crew chief Scott Eggleston was suspended for one race and fined $25,000. Car chief Kevin Eagle was suspended for one race. Both were placed on probation through the rest of the year.

Team owner Mike Curb was docked 15 championship points in the car owner standings.

Timmy Hill drove the No. 98 car in last Sunday's Sprint Cup Series race, the Crown Royal Presents the Jeff Kyle 400.

Elsa/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft on Wednesday called the NFL's investigation and decision to uphold quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension "extremely frustrating and disconcerting."

Kraft said he regrets not taking legal action in May when the team was fined by the NFL.

"I was wrong to put my faith in the league," Kraft said, adding that Brady "is a person of great integrity and is a great ambassador of the game both on and off the field."

Brady responded earlier Wednesday to the NFL's decision to uphold the four-game suspension in relation to the "Deflategate" scandal, saying he was "very disappointed."

"I did nothing wrong, and no one in the Patriots organization did either," Brady said in a post to Facebook. "Despite submitting to hours of testimony over the past 6 months, it is disappointing that the Commissioner [Roger Goodell] upheld my suspension based upon a standard that it was 'probable' that I was 'generally aware' of misconduct."

At the news conference Wednesday morning, Kraft said, "I continue to believe and unequivocally support Tom Brady" and called the league's decision "unfathomable."

"I have come to the conclusion that this was never about doing what was fair and just," he added.

The investigation, led by attorney Ted Wells, stated it "is more than probable" that Brady "was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities" involving the release of air from the Patriots' footballs.

The NFL players union have now filed an appeal of Roger Goodell's decision in Minnesota Federal Court.

The NFL said Tuesday that it would uphold Brady's four-game suspension, originally handed down in May.

Al Bello/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The destruction of Tom Brady's Samsung phone wouldn't have been enough to immediately get rid of his text messages, however the window of time he waited to disclose to the NFL he destroyed the phone would have been enough time for all traces of his communication to disappear.

Brady's destroyed smartphone turned out to be the latest smoking gun for NFL officials who on Tuesday upheld a four-game suspension against the New England Patriots quarterback for his alleged role in using underinflated footballs during the AFC championship game.

NFL officials said Brady was aware they had requested access to his smartphone as part of their investigation. The phone was destroyed on or before March 6, according to officials, but its destruction was not disclosed until June 18.

Brady sent and received a total of 10,000 text messages on the now-destroyed Samsung device, according to the NFL. He said in a Facebook post Wednesday he has "never written, texted, emailed to anybody at anytime, anything related to football air pressure before this issue was raised at the AFC Championship game in January."

"To suggest that I destroyed a phone to avoid giving the NFL information it requested is completely wrong," Brady's post stated.

If the device wasn't completely destroyed, it could be possible to get those text messages using forensic software or by getting a subpoena, Mike Kessler, president of Kessler International, an investigative company specializing in forensics, said.

"If you destroy your phone, the carriers usually keep the messages for a short period of time, anywhere between 30 and 90 days. It depends on the carrier after that they are gone," he said. "Normally though if you have the instrument and they are deleted off the instrument we can most times resurrect many of those messages."

It's unknown what carrier Brady used, but the window of time between the actual destruction of the phone and when the NFL found out meant the messages could no longer be recovered.

"Following the appeal hearing, Mr. Brady's representatives provided a letter from his cellphone carrier confirming that the text messages sent from or received by the destroyed cellphone could no longer be recovered," the NFL said in its appeal decision.

While the destruction of the phone may have appeared as an attempt to withhold potential evidence from investigators, Brady told the NFL it was common practice anytime he got a new phone.

"I replaced my broken Samsung phone with a new iPhone 6 AFTER my attorneys made it clear to the NFL that my actual phone device would not be subjected to investigation under ANY circumstances," he wrote. "As a member of a union, I was under no obligation to set a new precedent going forward, nor was I made aware at any time during Mr. [Ted] Wells investigation, that failing to subject my cell phone to investigation would result in ANY discipline."

The NFL Player's Association said in a statement it would "appeal this outrageous decision on behalf of Tom Brady."

"The fact that the NFL would resort to basing a suspension on a smoke screen of irrelevant text messages instead of admitting that they have all of the phone records they asked for is a new low, even for them, but it does nothing to correct their errors," the NFLPA said.

Jared Wickerham/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The National Football League announced its decision Tuesday to uphold the punishment imposed on Patriots quarterback Tom Brady over the scandal that has become known as “deflategate.”

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell decided to uphold Brady’s four-game suspension, in large part, because investigators found he instructed his assistant to destroy his cellphone. It was the phone Brady used around the time of the AFC championship game, when the footballs he snapped were improperly inflated.

“The commissioner found that Brady’s deliberate destruction of potentially relevant evidence went beyond a mere failure to cooperate in the investigation and supported a finding that he had sought to hide evidence of his own participation in the underlying scheme to alter the footballs,” read a statement from the NFL on Tuesday.

The NFL said Brady arranged for the phone’s destruction even though he knew investigators wanted to see text messages he exchanged with locker room staff.

NY Daily News Archive via Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — As President Obama was traveling overseas, it seems the White House caught up on its homework and completed all outstanding responses to petitions on White House.gov.
 
One noteworthy petition called on the White House to consider awarding New York Yankees great Yogi Berra with the presidential medal of freedom for his military service and civil rights and educational activism. The petition was launched May 9 and received more than 111,000 signatures in a month.
 
On Tuesday, the White House finally responded, noting that while the award recipient is determined at the “sole discretion” of the president — Berra’s resume makes him deserving.
 
“[T]herefore our response to this petition cannot comment on whether any individual will receive the award in the future,” the response stated. “We can, however, say that throughout his career as a Hall-of-Fame catcher for the New York Yankees and beyond, Yogi Berra has done a lot more than hit and think at the same time.”
 
The White House then ticked off a number of Berra’s accomplishments beyond his hall of fame career before concluding in typical Yogi fashion:
 
“He's demonstrated many of the qualities of past Presidential Medal of Freedom recipients, so — as he might say — it ain't over 'til it's over.”
 
Berra’s granddaughter, Lindsay Berra, reacted via Twitter positively to the White House’s response.
 
"@WhiteHouse response to #YogiMedal petition. Not a yes yet, but seems @BarackObama is thinking on it! #Yankees," she tweeted.
