Each team was cited for violations of Section 10.9.10.4 in the NASCAR Rule Book for each having one lug nut improperly secured in a post-race check. On the Cup Series side, that meant $10,000 fines for the crew chiefs of the following three teams after Sunday’s Hollywood Casino 400:
- No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford (crew chief Rodney Childers)
- No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota (crew chief Adam Stevens)
- No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota (crew chief James Small)
In Gander Trucks, a $2,500 fine was handed down to crew chief Drew Blickensderfer after the No. 17 DGR-Crosley Ford was found with one unsecured lug nut. Hailie Deegan drove the entry to 16th place in her series debut in the Clean Harbors 200.
