NASCAR officials issued penalties Tuesday for infractions in the Cup Series and Craftsman Truck Series in last weekend’s events at Nashville Superspeedway.

Carson Hocevar, driver of the Spire Motorsports No. 77 Chevrolet, was fined $50,000 and assessed a loss of 25 driver points for violating Sections 4.4B: NASCAR Member Code of Conduct Penalty Options And Guidelines during Sunday’s Ally 400. Hocevar’s No. 77 Chevy made contact with Wood Brothers Racing’s No. 21 Ford driven by Harrison Burton under yellow, causing the latter to spin out.
