It was a rough week for the NASCAR Cup Series teams at Texas Motor Speedway the past few days when a persistent drizzle and rain prevented the teams from racing for three days.

The rains abated and allowed the race to be completed on Wednesday October 28 with Kyle Busch finally getting his first win of the season.

But three teams were not quite so lucky when it came to avoiding penalties after the race.

During the post race inspection process, NASCAR officials discovered loose lug nuts on three cars.

The Roush Fenway Racing number six car driven by Ryan Newman, the number 12 Penske Racing car driven by Ryan Blaney, and the number 14 Stewart-Haas Racing car driven by Clint Bowyer were all found to have a single lug nut improperly secured.

As a result of the infraction, NASCAR has fined Newman’s crew chief Scott Graves, Blaney’s crew chief Todd Gordon, and Bowyer’s crew chief John Klausmeier $10,000 each.

After confiscating the spoiler, suspending and fining  crew chief James Smallls, and docking 20 owner and driver points for violating the NASCAR rule book; NASCAR has not levied any further penalties on the Stewart-Haas Racing number 19 team with Martin Truex Jr as the driver.
