Challinor was dismissed just 28 minutes into The Hatters' 4-1 thumping at Plymouth Argyle for a deliberate handball.
The former Tranmere defender handled a long ball about 40 yards from his own goal but was deemed to have prevented a goal scoring opportunity and was sent off for a professional foul.
Although County boss Palmer did not see the incident he said that referee Warren had agreed to have another look at his decision.
"I was on the way down from the directors' box so I missed the sending off," Palmer told the club's website.
"However, the chairman and Dave Challinor were both adamant that it shouldn't have been a red card.
"I asked the ref what he sent Dave off for and he said that he felt he'd denied them a goal scoring opportunity.
"But how can it be a goal scoring opportunity 40 yards from goal?
"I'm not going to say too much now because the referee has promised me that he's going to have a look at the video and, if he deems it right, he's going to overturn his decision."
Challinor is currently suspended for County's FA Cup clash with Argyle but he would be able to try and get his revenge on The Pilgrims should his red card be overturned.
