Four crew chiefs fined for lug nut violations

NASCAR has fined four crew chiefs for silly lug nut violations from last weekend’s races at Richmond Raceway. When is NASCAR going to switch to a single center lug not. Alternately, make the fuel flow slower so the tire changers are not so rushed.

These fines every week just get sillier. When a rule is constantly being broken, and not on purpose, then the rule is broken.

In Cup, NASCAR fined Denny Hamlin‘s crew chief, Chris Gabehart, and Ryan Blaney‘s crew chief, Todd Gordon, $10,000 each because their cars had a lug nut not secure after Saturday night’s race.

NASCAR fined Xfinity crew chief Bruce Schlicker $5,000 after Ross Chastain‘s car had a lug nut not secure after the first of two Xfinity races last weekend at Richmond.

In the Truck Series, NASCAR fined crew chief Scott Zipadelli $2,500 after Austin Hill‘s truck had a lug nut not secure after the Richmond race.
