Michael Bugarewicz, crew chief for Clint Bowyer on the No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing team in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, has been suspended for one race and fined $25,000, because the “TV Video Package simulated weight did not meet NASCAR specifications,” according NASCAR’s weekly penalty report that was released Wednesday and detailed penalties issued because of rules infractions during the Martinsville (Va.) Speedway race weekend that culminated in Sunday’s running of the First Data 500.

Bowyer also was docked 10 driver points and the team lost 10 owner points, because the fake onboard camera was too light. Cars that don’t carry onboard cameras for the live TV broadcast of the race are required to carry fake versions of the camera so that the real cameras atop some of the cars don’t put them at a competitive disadvantages.

NASCAR also issued fines to two other Cup Series crew chiefs for loose/missing lug nuts. Scott Graves, crew chief on the No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing team of Daniel Suarez, and Robert “Bootie” Barker, crew chief on the No. 13 Germain Racing team of Ty Dillon, were each fined $10,000.
