NASCAR issued a P2 penalty to Team Penske’s No. 22 Xfinity team for failing post-race laser inspection measurements last weekend at Michigan International Speedway.

NASCAR docked the team 10 owners points and fined crew chief Brian Wilson $7,500. Joey Logano finished sixth in Saturday’s race. The No. 22 team has yet to win a race in 2016 through 13 races. This is the latest it has not won a race since Brad Keselowski won the 18th race of the 2011 season at Kentucky Speedway.

In the Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR gave out its first punishment for a violation of its new lug nut rule outside of the Sprint Cup Series.

Scott Zipadelli, crew chief on Red Horse Racing’s No. 11 Truck, was suspended one race and put on probation through the end of the calendar year for violating the rule.

One written warning was given to the No. 23 team of Spencer Gallagher for truck trailing arm U-bolts and U-bolt mounting saddles not conforming to specified rule book drawings. It is the second warning for Gallagher’s team. If a team receives four written warnings, it will lose pit selection for one race.
