NASCAR suspended ten members of the crew from two major series and three separate squads on Tuesday.
Defective wheels plagued both the Cup and Xfinity series races at Dover (Del.) Motor Speedway this past weekend.
Both Denny Hamlin’s No. 11 Toyota and A.J. Allmendinger’s No. 16 Chevrolet lost wheels following pit stops during Monday’s rain-postponed race at Dover.
Crew chief Chris Gabehart and members of the crew Derrell Edwards and Blake Houston from Hamlin’s squad have all been eliminated from the next 4 races (through the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte).
Crew chief Matt Swiderski and crew members Keiston France and Jonathan Willard from Allmendinger’s Kaulig Racing squad have all been disqualified from the next four races.
NASCAR has suspended eight separate squads this season for letting wheels come loose throughout Cup races.
Last Saturday’s Xfinity race also saw the No. 1 Chevrolet of Sam Mayer lose a wheel on the racetrack.
Taylor Moyer, crew chief for the JR Motorsports squad, and crew members Orane Ossowski and Markus Pierce-Brewster have all been disqualified for the next four Xfinity Series events.
Furthermore, NASCAR confirmed the indefinite suspension of Jason Houghtaling, who was the crew chief for Xfinity Series racer Jesse Iwuji for the first 8 races of the 2022 season.
Houghtaling was eliminated under Rule 4.4.e, which states that a participant may face disciplinary action for a “public statement and/or communication that demeans, criticises, ridicules, or otherwise disparages another person based on that person’s race, colour, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, age, or handicapping condition.”
Houghtaling has left Jesse Iwuji Motorsports.
