NASCAR announced after Sunday’s Sprint Cup race at Texas Motor Speedway that Joey Logano’s car had 19 of 20 lug nuts secured after the race.

Per NASCAR’s lug nut chart, a first occurrence for a Sprint Cup team whose car is missing one lug nut is a $10,000 fine and no point penalty.

NASCAR is expected to announce penalties and warnings from the Texas weekend on Wednesday.

Logano, who led a race-high 178 laps, finished second. Carl Edwards won the AAA Texas 500.
