ROUSH FENWAY CUP SERIES CREW CHIEF DRAWS ONE-RACE SUSPENSION
Nick Sandler, crew chief on Ricky Stenhouse Junior’s Number-17 Roush Fenway Racing Ford in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, has been suspended for one race, fined twenty thousand dollars and placed on probation through December 31st. An unapproved coupler was found on Stenhouse’s steering wheel during opening-day inspection last weekend at Richmond International Raceway.

DRIVERS COUNCIL MAKES DONATION
The Sprint Cup Drivers Council raised thirty-five thousand dollars last week to pay Tony Stewart’s fine for speaking out against NASCAR’s lax policy regarding lug nuts … and the group announced Wednesday that it was donating that money to Autism Delaware. Stewart said he didn’t want the Drivers Council paying his fine and they made a joint decision to forward the funds as a donation. Stewart made his critical comments last week regarding the issue of lug nuts, which he said was a safety concern of his. Five days after Stewart spoke out, NASCAR issued a memo to teams stating that it would now require all five lug nuts to be tightened during pit stops.
