Three penalties were announced to teams following this past weekend’s races at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

In the Xfinity Series, the No. 11 Kaulig Racing Chevrolet team (driver Justin Haley) and No. 98 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford team (driver Riley Herbst) were each found with one unsecured lug nut after Saturday’s EchoPark 250. The infractions meant $5,000 fines for each team’s crew chief – Kaulig’s Alex Yontz and SHR’s Richard Boswell.

The winning Camping World Truck Series entry of Kyle Busch Motorsports No. 51 Toyota driven by Kyle Busch was also found with one lug nut that was not properly fastened after Saturday’s FR8Auctions 200. That resulted in a $2,500 fine for crew chief Mardy Lindley for violating Section 10.9.10.4 (Tires and Wheels) in the NASCAR rule book.
