Tommy Joe Martins’ Crew Chief Suspended for Shady Rays 200

NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Tommy Joe Martins will be without regular crew chief Daniel Johnson this Thursday, June 9, at Kentucky Speedway.

Johnson was suspended on Tuesday (July 7) in reaction to the rear axle coming off of Martins’ No. 44 Chevrolet at last weekend’s race on the road course at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. No points deduction or monetary fine will be assessed.

The suspension will be for one race, Thursday night’s Shady Rays 200 at Kentucky. Johnson will return the following day for the Alsco 300, the second race of the Xfinity Series’ doubleheader at the track.

Martins has competed in all but one of the Xfinity Series’ 13 races so far this year, the only exception being the season opener at Daytona International Speedway, where he failed to qualify. His best result to date in 2020 was in the Unhinged 300 at Talladega Superspeedway, where he finished 15th.

  1. I’m glad to see NASCAR didn’t penalize with money/fines or points. These low budget teams don’t need those kind of penalties.
