The Nos. 22 and 19 teams in the NASCAR XFINITY Series received penalties for lug nuts not properly installed following Saturday’s Kansas Lottery 300 at Kansas Speedway.

Crew chiefs Greg Erwin (No. 22 team) and Dave Rogers (No. 19) each were fined $5,000 when their cars were found with one unsecured lug nut in post-race inspection.

Ryan Blaney drove the No. 22 Ford to a third-place finish, while Matt Tifft finished eighth in the No. 19 Toyota.

The XFINITY Series Playoffs return to the track for the second race in the Round of 8 on Nov. 4 at Texas Motor Speedway (8:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, PRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
