When NASCAR officials issued penalties after the triple header weekend in Nashville, surprisingly further penalties for the Hendrick Motorsports number nine car were not forth coming past the disqualification after the race on Sunday when it was discovered that five of the 20 lug nuts were not properly secured. Driver Chase Elliott’s being disqualfied in the race resulted in Elliott being placed in 39th (last) place and the loss of his stage one win.

However, Joe Gibbs Racing received two penalties, both for lug nut violations.

In the Cup Series, the Joe Gibbs Racing number 19 car driven by Martin Truex Jr was found to have one lug nut improperly secured. As a result, crew chief James Small was fined $10,000.

In the Xfinity Series, the Joe Gibbs Racing number 54 driven by race winner Kyle Busch who earned Xfinity Series race number 100 was also found to have a single lug nut improperly secured in the post race inspection process. Crew chief Chris Gayle has been fined $5,000 for the infraction.

There were no penalties issues in the Camping World Truck Series.
