Find out how NASCAR Twitter reacted to the wheel infraction penalty imposed on the No:17 RFK Racing team,

Chris Buescher's No:17 RFK Racing Mustang

As expected by everyone in the NASCAR community the premier Stock car racing organization has announced the penalty for the No:17 RFK Racing team after the wheel of Chris Buescher came off during the race. This has marked the 11th such incident in which NASCAR has been forced to act upon and penalize the crew chief along with his crew for wheel infractions.

Chris Buescher, who finished P30 in Ally 400, was subjected to the penalty after the incident in lap 225 where he started experiencing some troubles before losing the wheel at turn 4 as he made minor contact with the wall. Buescher limped his way back to the pit road in hopes of continuing his race while the wheel rolled down the front stretch.

The continuing single-wheel nut trouble, which has been hurting all the teams irrespective of their size and competitions badly, now has brought in an automatic four-week suspension for the RFK Team as Buescher’s crew chief Scott Graves and crew members Matthew Wilps and Seth Gajdorus have been suspended for four races. They will only be able to join back with the team after the Poccano outing at the end of July.
