Three teams received penalties following Sunday’s (May 2) NASCAR Cup Series race at Kansas Speedway, all for lug nut-related issues.

Penalties were given to the Nos. 1, 17 and 22 teams of Kurt Busch, Chris Buescher and Joey Logano, respectively, after failing post-race inspection.

As a result, crew chiefs Matt McCall, Luke Lambert and Paul Wolfe have been fined $10,000 each for failing to install lug nuts properly on their respective vehicles.

Buescher was the top finisher of the group, placing eighth Sunday. Busch finished 15th, while Logano concluded the race 17th.

In addition to the Cup penalties, NASCAR announced GMS Racing engineer Jonathan Stewart has completed NASCAR’s Road to Recovery Program after violating its sports gambling policy in March 2021, thus lifting his indefinite suspension.
