Penalty report: Joe Gibbs Racing No. 19 team fined for lug-nut violation at Sonoma

NASCAR officials fined the No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing team Tuesday for a lug-nut infraction after Sunday’s Cup Series event at Sonoma Raceway.

Race officials found one lug nut not safely secured in a post-race check after the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at the 2.52-mile road course. Running afoul of Section 10.9.10.4 in the NASCAR Rule Book meant a $10,000 fine for James Small, crew chief for JGR’s No. 19 team.

Martin Truex Jr. drove the No. 19 Toyota to a third-place finish. Kyle Larson prevailed in the race, snapping a modest two-race win streak for Truex on the California circuit.

No post-race penalties emerged from last weekend’s event for the NASCAR Xfinity Series at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
