NASCAR has issued two fines for unsecured lug nut violations last weekend at Richmond Raceway.

Adam Stevens, crew chief on Kyle Busch’s No. 18 Toyota in Cup, was fined $10,000 for one unsecured lug nut.

In the Xfinity Series, crew chief Jason Ratcliff received a $5,000 fine for an unsecured lug nut on Christopher Bell’s No. 20 Toyota. Both Busch and Bell won their respective races.

NASCAR also suspended Gregory Katzke, Jr. indefinitely for violating Sections 12.1.a and 2.11.a in the rulebook. Section 2.11.a requires any member of NASCAR “charged with any violation of the law (misdemeanor and/or felony)” to notify NASCAR “prior to the next scheduled Event or within 72 hours of being so charged, whichever is earlier.”
