NASCAR officials issued fines Tuesday to two crew chiefs in the Monster Energy Series for lug-nut violations last weekend at Pocono Raceway.
Competition officials handed down $10,000 fines to Chris Gabehart, crew chief of Denny Hamlin’s race-winning Joe Gibbs Racing No. 11 Toyota, and Chad Johnston, crew chief for the Chip Ganassi Racing No. 42 Chevrolet of fifth-finishing Kyle Larson.
Both cars were found with one lug nut not safely secured after Sunday’s Gander RV 400 at the 2.5-mile track.
