Kyle Busch Motorsports crew chief suspended after Texas Motor Speedway pitstop miscue

The No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports team was issued a safety penalty on Oct. 28, stemming from a loose wheel that did not stay installed following a pit stop in Sunday afternoon’s race at Texas Motor Speedway.

As a result of violating Sections 12.5.2.7.4 in the NASCAR Rule Book, which specifies a penalty for any loss or separation of an improperly installed tire/wheel from the vehicle, the team’s crew chief Danny Stockman and tire changer Brandon Traino have been suspended from the next three NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races.

There are two races remaining in the 2020 Truck Series season, meaning this penalty will carry over to the 2021 season-opener.
