NASCAR issues post-race penalties, fines from Kansas

NASCAR issued penalties Tuesday after last weekend’s events at Kansas Speedway, handing down fines to a pair of NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series teams.

Both the No. 19 McAnally Hilgemann Racing team and the No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports team were penalized after one lug nut was found not safely secured on each vehicle during a post-race check. As a result, crew chiefs Kevin Bellicourt (No. 19) and Danny Stockman (No. 51) were fined $2,500 for the safety infractions.

Derek Kraus finished seventh in the No. 19, with Brandon Jones right behind him in eighth while driving the No. 51.
