Following the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup race in Atlanta, A.J. Allmendinger’s 26th-place result was ruled an encumbered finish after three lugnuts were found to be loose in a post-race inspection. As a result, the team has been docked 35 driver and owner points, and crew chief Randall Burnett was fined $65,000 and given a three-race suspension. It may seem a bit harsh, but NASCAR warned all teams the new rules in place for this year would be rigorously enforced.
