Three Crew Members Suspended from Sheldon Creed’s Team

By  | 

Everybody may have fun in the NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series’ lone race on dirt this season, but it was not smiles for everyone leaving.

Three crew members from Sheldon Creed‘s team have been suspended as a result of violating Section 20.3.4.a of the NASCAR Rule Book having to do with ballast containers. Crew chief Jeff Stankiewicz, truck chief Austin Pollak and engineer Jonathan Stewart will miss the next three events on the schedule. 

The penalty comes after the No. 2 Chevrolet Silverado had a ballast fall out during practice leading up to the Eldora Dirt Derby. Creed ultimately scored a runner-up in the race on Thursday night. 

GMS Racing has announced they will not appeal the penalty, with Darren Fraley serving as the interim crew chief for the next three events. An engineer with GMS in 2018, he helped Justin Haley earn three wins, nine top-five’s, and 18 top-10 finishes.
