NASCAR’s penalty report from last weekend’s racing at Texas Motor Speedway includes five crew chiefs fined, all for lug nut violations.

CUP SERIES

Three Cup crew chiefs were each fined $10,000 after a single lug nut was found not secure on their respective cars in post-race inspection:

  • Matt McCall (No. 1 Chip Ganassi Racing – driver Kurt Busch)
  • Randall Burnett (No. 8 Richard Childress Racing – driver Tyler Reddick)
  • Seth Chavka (No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing – driver Kyle Busch)

Chavka was the No. 18 team’s interim crew chief at Texas. He was calling the shots in place of Ben Beshore, who was serving a one-race suspension.

XFINITY SERIES

Two Xfinity crew chiefs were each fined $5,000 after a single lug nut was found not secure on their respective cars in post-race inspection:

  • Jeff Meendering (No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing – driver Brandon Jones)
  • Richard Boswell (No. 98 Stewart-Haas Racing – driver Riley Herbst)
