DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – NASCAR has suspended three crew members from the No. 2 GMS Racing team of driver Sheldon Creed in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series.

The suspensions are the result of a safety violation last week at Eldora Speedway, when ballast from Creed’s No. 2 truck fell on the race track during practice. Creed finished second in Thursday’s Eldora Dirt Derby.

As a result, crew chief Jeff Stankiewicz, truck chief Austin Pollak and engineer Jonathan Stewart have all been suspended for the next three NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series events.

GMS Racing has announced they will not appeal the penalty.

Darren Fraley will serve as interim crew chief in place of Stankiewicz for the next three NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series races at Michigan Int’l Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway and Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.
