For no fault of their own, NASCAR kicked Denny Hamlin's team out of the game while a series was underway on Tuesday

They were punished according to the NASCAR rule book, where the team was officially penalized for not obeying Section 10526

Team # 11's two main drivers and two other drivers have been suspended by NASCAR for four matches for violating the rules

The strangest part is that, despite being appointed as the front tire changer, Houston was not the one who failed to change the front tire

They knew very well that it was Hicks who was responsible for changing the front tire and taking the wheel off

Wouldn’t it make more sense to suspend the individual who didn’t get the wheel on properly, regardless of what he was "listed" as?

It does seem a bit odd that the wrong individual would be suspended for a safety violation if the issue at hand is indeed safety

But it still seems weird that NASCAR suspended the tire changer listed as "front" on the roster when it was clear on film another changer had an issue
