Penalty Report from Bristol: Joe Gibbs Racing Fined

Two Joe Gibbs Racing teams were fined following the conclusion of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series’ Food City 500 on Sunday, according to the penalty report released Tuesday afternoon (April 9).

Both the Nos. 11 and 19 teams had one loose lug nut in post-race inspection. As a result, crew chiefs Chris Gabehart (No. 11) and Cole Pearn (No. 19) were each fined $10,000.

Denny Hamlin drove the No. 11 car to a fifth-place finish, while Martin Truex Jr finished 17th.

There were no issues in the NASCAR Xfinity Series this week.

There were no penalties in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, either, as the series was off.

The Xfinity Series is next in action at Richmond Raceway in the ToyotaCare 250 on Friday, April 12 at 7 p.m. ET., with TV coverage on Fox Sports 1, while the MENCS takes to the track for the Toyota Owners 400 on Saturday, April 13 at 7:30 p.m. ET., with TV coverage on Fox.

I bet Reverend Joe can take the money out of the check he sends every Monday. There must be quite a bidding war with Hendrick.
