NASCAR released its weekly penalty announcement on Tuesday, detailing penalties across its three national series following races at Dover (Del.) International Speedway for the Xfinity and Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 and the Camping World Truck Series for the Sept. 30 race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, with the most significant penalties being handed down to the No. 21 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet team of series playoff driver Daniel Hemric in the Xfinity Series.

Crew chief Danny Stockman Jr., car chief Clint Almquist and engineer Luke Mason of the No. 21 team have been suspended from all series races through Nov. 14, because an added ballast fell from the vehicle during practice at Dover. They’ll be able to return for at-track activity for the season-finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 18. No points were deducted from either the driver or car owner.

In addition, five fines were issued to five teams across all three national series as a result of loose or missing lug nuts. In the Cup Series, crew chief Mike Bugarewicz of the No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford team of Clint Bowyer and crew chief Chris Gayle from the No. 77 Furniture Row Racing Toyota team of Erik Jones each were fined $10,000. Chris Gabehart, the crew chief on the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota team that had Jones in its car at Dover, and Chad Norris, crew chief on the No. 48 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet team of Brennan Poole, both in the Xfinity Series, were fined $5,000. A $2,500 fine was assessed to Carl Joiner, crew chief on the No. 88 ThorSport Racing Toyota team of Matt Crafton in the Camping World Truck Series.
