Three Trucks Teams Penalized
NASCAR has penalized three Camping World Truck Series teams for infractions found in post-race inspection for the Kroger 250 at Martinsville Speedway.
The No. 31 Turner Scott Motorsports team, the No. 54 Kyle Busch Motorsports, and the No. 98 ThorSport Racing team have all been hit with a P3 penalty from NASCAR.
The three teams were found to have violated Section 20B-12.5 (D) (offset front hubs found in post-race inspection) of the 2014 NASCAR rule book.
As a result, each team’s crew chief – Michael Shelton of Ben Kennedy’s No. 31; Jerry Baxter of Darrell Wallace Jr’s No. 54; and Gene Wachtel of Johnny Sauter’s No. 98 – have been fined $10,000 and placed on NASCAR probation until the end of the calendar year.
All three teams finished in the top 5, with Wallace finishing second, Kennedy finishing third, and Sauter finishing fourth.
