The No. 98 car loses the crew chief (Richard Boswell), car chief (Nick Hutchins) and engineer (DJ Vanderley) for four races, starting with tomorrow’s race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, due to a safety violation – rule 126.96.36.199.4.d. (Loss or separation of added ballast from the vehicle will result in a four Race suspension of the crew chief, car chief, and head engineer.)

NASCAR Xfinity Series points leader Chase Briscoe got off to a rough start in Saturday’s race at Homestead-Miami Speedway even before the green flag fell. At least a piece of ballast fell off from Briscoe’s car during the pace laps.
Per Section 188.8.131.52.4.d of the NASCAR Rule Book, here is the penalty for ballast coming out of a car/truck: “Loss or separation of added ballast from the vehicle will result in a four Race suspension of the crew chief, car chief, and head engineer.”
