This past weekend at Darlington Raceway was a fun time for the drivers and crew with the throwback theme; but it was also a very busy time for the NASCAR officials who had to inspect and keep track of three separate racing series with the Camping World Truck, Xfinity, and Cup Series all running races.

While the Camping World Truck Series drivers avoided any penalties after the race, the Xfinity Series had three penalties issued; while the Cup Series had two penalties…one resulting in a suspension. All of the penalties were lug nut related in the post race inspection process.

The Penske Racing number 22 car driven by Joey Logano was charged with having two lug nuts improperly secured. As a result, crew chief Paul Wolfe was fined $20,000 and will be suspended for the upcoming race at Dover International Speedway this weekend.

The Roush Fenway Racing number 17 car driven by Chris Buescher was also charged with having a single lug nut improperly secured and crew chief Luke Lambert was fined $10,000.

In the Xfinity Series, three crew chiefs were fined $5,000 for having a single lug nut improperly secured…
