Ross Chastain’s crew chief fined

Penalties continued for the #42 Chip Ganassi Racing team of Ross Chastain after the NASCAR All-Star Race on June 13 at Texas Motor Speedway. Crew chief Phil Surgen has been fined $25,000 because of an aero duct that did not meet NASCAR rules.

Surgen was ejected and Chastain started the NASCAR All-Star Open in the back because of violation of section 20.4.2.d (Surface Conformance) of the NASCAR rule book. The infraction was discovered during pre-race inspection. After the issue was corrected, Chastain won the first stage of the Open to advance to the All-Star Race.

NASCAR’s weekly penalty report also included the indefinite supension of Matthew Moermond, Technical Director and an engineer for NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team Kyle Busch Motorsports. According to the report, Moermond violated NASCAR’s substance abuse policy.

Taylor Moyer, crew chief on the #8 JR Motorsports team of Josh Berry, was fined $5,000 for one loose or missing lug nut after the June 12 NASCAR Xfinity Series race, also at Texas.
