NASCAR announced that Martin Truex Jr., driver of the No. 8 Chevrolet, has been penalized, fined and placed on probation after a rule violation during the NASCAR Busch Series race last Friday night at Richmond International Raceway.

Additionally, three other NASCAR Busch Series crew chiefs were penalized following rule infractions at Richmond.

Truex was penalized 25 NASCAR Busch Series driver championship points and fined $10,000 for an inappropriate gesture, violating Section 12-4-A of the 2005 NASCAR Busch Series rule book (actions detrimental to stock car racing). He has also been placed on probation until December 31, 2005.

In addition, Truex’s car owner, Teresa Earnhardt, was penalized 25 NASCAR Busch Series championship owner points also for violating 12-4-A.

The deductions reduce both Truex’s driver point total and Earnhardt’s owner point total from 3,956 to 3,931.

Three crew chiefs were also penalized for rule infractions at Richmond. Eddie Buffington, crew chief for the No. 12 Dodge driven by Paul Wolfe and Chad Beahr, crew chief for the No. 94 Ford driven by Eddie Beahr, were each fined $500 for violating Sections 12-4-A and 12-4-Q (car, car parts, components and/or equipment used that do not conform to NASCAR rules – steering idler arm was not solid) during opening day inspection on Sept. 8.

And Ricky Viers, crew chief for the No. 21 Chevrolet driven by Kevin Harvick, was fined $500 after being found in violation of 12-4-A and 12-4-Q (lug nuts too thin). The infraction was discovered during qualifying on Sept. 9.
