NASCAR on Tuesday issued its weekly penalty report.
Two penalties were assessed from this past weekend’s racing action at Bristol Motor Speedway, and both were issued to Cup Series crew chiefs for Joe Gibbs Racing:
* Cole Pearn, crew chief of the No. 19 JGR Toyota driven by Martin Truex Jr., was fined $10,000 for violating Sections 10.9.10.4 of the NASCAR Rule Book: Tires and Wheels – lug nut(s) not properly installed.
* Chris Gabehart, crew chief of the No. 11 JGR Toyota driven by Denny Hamlin, was also fined $10,000 for lug nut(s) not properly installed.
Both penalties were for one loose or missing lug nut.
There were no other penalties issued.
