Furniture Row Racing's appeal of NASCAR's one-race suspension of Martin Truex Jr.'s crew chief, Cole Pearn, has been granted by the sanctioning body.
A NASCAR spokesman confirmed to FOXSports.com Thursday morning that NASCAR has agreed to hear the team's appeal and that Pearn's suspension has been deferred until the appeal can be heard.
A hearing date for the appeal has not been decided, the NASCAR spokesman said.
This means Pearn will be allowed to call the shots for Truex and the No. 78 team this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where the Sprint Cup Series will compete in Sunday's Kobalt 400 (FOX, 3 p.m. ET).
NASCAR announced late Wednesday that Pearn had been fined $50,000 and suspended one race, and the driver and team docked 15 driver and owner points, respectively, after Sprint Cup Series officials discovered an issue with the No. 78 Toyota's roof flaps last weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Prior to last weekend's infraction, Pearn was already on probation through the end of the year for an issue with Truex's roof flaps prior to qualifying for the Daytona 500.
