3 NASCAR Crew Chiefs get lug nut fines

How much longer must we endure NASCAR’s silly lug nuts before they switch to a single lug nut like open wheel racing?

NASCAR has issued $10,000 fines each to three Cup crew chiefs for lug nut violations after last weekend’s Kansas race.

Fined for not having all lug nuts safe and secure are Rodney Childers (Kevin Harvick), Adam Stevens (Kyle Busch) and James Smalls (Martin Truex Jr.)….as if it is the crew chiefs who change the tires. Want to stop the lug nut violations – fine the violators – the tire changers who have full control of the situation!

In the Truck Series, crew chief Drew Blickensderfer (Hailie Deegan) was fined $2,500 for not having all the lug nuts on tight.

NASCAR keeps its head in the dark over its silly lug nut rules
