NASCAR officials penalized Austin Hill on Wednesday for his actions while racing fellow driver Cole Custer in last weekend‘s NASCAR Xfinity Series event at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Hill was fined $25,000 and was docked 25 points in the Xfinity Series driver standings under Section 4.4B in the NASCAR Rule Book.

The points penalty knocks Hill out of the lead in the Xfinity Series standings, dropping him to third place behind new leader Chandler Smith and second-place Custer.

Competition officials also penalized two teams in the Craftsman Truck Series for lug-nut violations after Friday‘s race at Charlotte. Crew chiefs for the two teams were fined $2,500 each for one unsecured lug nut on their trucks:

No. 5 Tricon Garage Toyota (crew chief Derek Smith)
No. 38 Front Row Motorsports Ford (crew chief Dylan Cappello)
