Eddie Troconis Suspended by NASCAR

NASCAR has indefinitely suspended Eddie Troconis for violating Sections 4.3 and 4.43 of the rule book.

Section 4.3 relates to NASCAR member conduct.

Section 4.4.e is: Member actions that could result in a fine and/or indefinite suspension, or termination:

  • Actions by a NASCAR Member that NASCAR finds to be detrimental to stock car racing or NASCAR.
  • Statement and/or communication made public (including social media platforms) that demeans, criticizes, ridicules, or otherwise disparages another person based upon that person’s race, color, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, age, or handicapping condition.
  • Being charged with or convicted of significant criminal violations (e.g. Domestic Violence, Trafficking, Assault), or having had determinations rendered by criminal or civil authorities that in NASCAR’s judgment necessitate action. NASCAR will not pre-judge guilt or innocence in the criminal or civil legal system, or the guilt or innocence of the Member, but rather review each matter in its own context and circumstances and with regards to its potential effects upon the sport.
  • Violations of NASCAR’s Sports Gambling Policy.

Troconis was arrested again on March 18 by the Talladega (Ala.) County Sheriff’s Department for second degree assault.

Troconis most recently served as crew chief for Kaz Grala at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Jesse Little at Atlanta Motor Speedway for Young’s Motorsports.

He was previously suspended in October and was reinstated on Feb. 11.
