As expected, the Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing number 17 car has been hit with a major penalty after loosing a wheel during the Ally 400 at Nashville Superspeedway on June 26.  As a result of violating the NASCAR rule book, crew chief Scott Graves, rear tire changer Seth Gajdorus, and jackman Matthew Wilps have all been suspended for the next four Cup Series races.

It has been a rough few weeks for the driver of the number 17 car Chris Buescher; he ended up on the roof of his car after a wreck during the Coca Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, then missed the race at World Wide Technology Raceway after testing positive for Covid, and then just missed out on a win at Sonoma Raceway.
