Two Penske crew members suspended for Kansas tire violation

Two Team Penske crew members from Austin Cindric‘s team have been suspended for two races by NASCAR after a wheel came off Cindric’s car during Sunday’s race at Kansas Speedway.

Keiston France and Patrick Gray will miss the next two Cup events.

Cindric finished 31st in the race.

NASCAR did not announce a penalty to Ross Chastain or Noah Gragson for their post-race scuffle at Kansas. Chastain raced Gragson high and into the wall during the race, and Gragson approached him on pit road after the race to discuss the matter. Gragson grabbed Chastain’s arms, and Chastain responded by hitting Gragson in the face.

NASCAR typically has not penalized drivers for similar scuffles. Bubba Wallace shoved Kyle Larson at Texas last year, and Ty Gibbs and Sam Mayer were involved in a scuffle at Martinsville last spring, and penalties did not result in either case.
