Todd Gilliland loses crew chief for four weeks after Auto Club penalty
Rookie Todd Gilliland will be without crew chief Seth Barbour and two other crew members as the result of a penalty from Sunday’s Cup race at Auto Club Speedway.
The No. 38 Ford from Front Row Motorsports lost a wheel under caution during the event. The infraction breaks sections 10.5.2.6 in the NASCAR rulebook: Loss or separation of an improperly installed tire/wheel from the vehicle.
As a result, Barbour serves an automatic four-race suspension, as will jackman Jourdan Osinskie and front tire changer Tanner Andrews. They will be able to rejoin the team April 3 at Richmond Raceway.
