BJ McLeod’s Live Fast Team Penalized for Detached Wheel

BJ McLeod’s No. 78 Live Fast Motorsports team has been penalized by NASCAR for a detached wheel, NASCAR officials said Wednesday, April 27.

During the running of the GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway this past Sunday, driver and co-owner of Live Fast BJ McLeod spun in turn 2, prompting a yellow flag to come out. As the car ran down the banking, the right rear wheel came off and rolled to a stop. McLeod finished 26th at Talladega.

As a result of the penalty, crew chief Lee Leslie along with jackman Alpha Lamin and rear-tire changer Kevin Teaf all will sit out the next four races.
