NASCAR officials issued a four-race suspension Tuesday to Front Row Motorsports crew chief Seth Barbour and crew members Jourdan Osinskie (jack man) and Tanner Andrews (front changer) after the No. 38 Ford lost a wheel during last weekend’s Cup Series event at Auto Club Speedway.

Todd Gilliland drove the No. 38 to a 20th-place finish in Sunday’s Wise Power 400, but his car lost a wheel during a caution period for the Stage 1 break. The Bob Jenkins-owned team was cited under Sections 10.5.2.6 of the NASCAR Rule Book, which covers “loss or separation of an improperly installed tire/wheel from the vehicle.”
Front Row announced Wednesday it had begun the appeals process for the penalties against the No. 38 team.
