The No. 31 Kaulig Racing squad of Justin Haley was NASCAR’s first consecutive loose wheel offender this season.
Trent Owens, Haley’s crew chief, and members of the crew Jonpatrick Kealey and Marshall McFadden were penalized by NASCAR on Tuesday during the next four races, as well as the All-Star Race at Texas Motor Speedway this weekend.
Haley’s No. 31 Chevrolet had a left-rear wheel come away on Lap 39 of last Sunday’s race at Kansas Speedway.
“Sections 10.5.2.6: Loss or separation of an incorrectly placed tire/wheel from the vehicle” is the regulation that was broken.
NASCAR has suspended 8 separate teams 9 times this season for having wheels come free during Cup Series races.
Haley’s club is the season’s first serial offender. Three members of the crew were suspended for 4 weeks after the No. 31 lost a wheel at the season-opening Daytona 500.
For the 2022 season, NASCAR will use center-locking wheels with one lug nut.
