Three NCWTS Teams Penalized after Martinsville Race

The No. 31, No. 54 and No. 98 teams have received penalties after suspension parts were confiscated by NASCAR officials in a post-race inspection after Sunday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Martinsville Speedway.

The three teams violated a P3 level penalty for violating Section 20B-12.5 (D) (offset front hubs found in post-race inspection) of the 2014 NASCAR rule book.

The crew chief for the No. 31, Michael Shelton, the crew chief for the No. 54, Jerry Baxter, and the crew chief for the No. 98, Gene Wachtel, have been fined $10,000 each and each were placed on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31.
