Truck title contender Majeski hit with major NASCAR penalty
NASCAR announced penalties for Josh Majeski and his No. 98 ThorSport Racing team for violating the Truck Series rulebook regarding wheels and tires. During pre-qualifying inspection at the Milwaukee Mile, a right-rear tire from the No. 98 was confiscated. The crew chief, Joe Shear, has been suspended for four races and fined $25,000. Both the team and driver have been docked 75 points and five playoff points. As a result, Majeski will drop from second to tenth in the series standings but will still advance to the second round of the playoffs due to his previous win. Three other Truck teams were also penalized, including one for an unapproved filler and two for improperly installed lug nuts.
