Martin Truex, Jr. Receives Another Warning from NASCAR

Third time’s the charm didn’t hold true for Martin Truex, Jr. and Furniture Row Racing.

NASCAR penalized three teams and suspended one crew member on Wednesday for infractions that occurred during last weekend’s Sprint Cup and XFINITY events at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The No. 19 and 78 teams of Carl Edwards and Truex were both warned for failing pre-qualifying templates. The warning was the third in three weeks for FRR, crew chief Cole Pearn and the rest of the No. 78 team.

Pearn will not be at the track this weekend at Phoenix. He will be serving a one-race suspension for multiple roof flap issues at Daytona and Atlanta. Todd Berrier will chief the car in Pearn’s absence.

The No. 31 team of Ryan Newman was warned for failing pre-race laser inspection.

The biggest penalty came in the form of an indefinite suspension for Christopher Jamieson, who violated NASCAR’s substance abuse policy. NASCAR did not say which team Jamieson competes for.
