NASCAR has announced an indefinite suspension for Young’s Motorsports’ No. 02 Chevrolet Silverado crew chief Carlos Eduardo Trocon Ortiz a.k.a Troconis after he was re-arrested for a second-degree assault and felony in Talladega.

The incident that led to the arrest occurred on October 2nd  last year in Talladega where Troconis participated in a  confrontation with NASCAR spotter Clayton Hughes but the charges against him were later dropped which helped him to come out of suspension then. However, the charge was reinstated this month and the 42-year-old was arrested by the County Talladega Sheriff’s department on March 18 and was presented before the court.

He has worked with several high-profile drivers in the past such as Christopher Bell, Bubba Wallace, and NXS champion Daniel Suarez. This year, he’s worked with both Kaz Grala and Jesse Little in the No. 02 truck at Young’s Motorsports.

Coleman Pressley is a professional spotter for the Penske Racing team, will continue his new job at Fox Sports for the coverage of the Xfinity series from the spotter stand giving fans a different perspective of racing. He has already reported from the spotter’s stand for the season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway.

Coleman Pressley said that he felt by doing the broadcasting he is giving something back to the racing community and added that the work also helps him to get better at his job on Sunday which is to spot Joey Logano in the Cup Series race.

“So, the more I can feel like I give back to the fans and maybe a new perspective and add news fans, I felt like this was an opportunity to help grow the sport. For me, I’m still watching the races and getting better at my job for Sunday,” Coleman Pressley said.
