NASCAR penalized the No. 23 Rick Ware Racing Nationwide Series team on Tuesday following a rules infraction from during practice last Friday for the U.S. Cellular 250 at Iowa Speedway.

The sanctioning body referred to the violation as a P3 level penalty and cited Sec. 12.1 Actions detrimental to stock car racing and Sec. 20A-2.3A: Any weight added to the car must be bolted inside the body shell in an approved weight container and in a position acceptable to NASCAR officials: Weight was not properly attached and fell out during the event.

NASCAR has also fined crew chief Jonas Bell $10,000 and placed him on probation until Dec. 31.

Carl Long raced the No. 23 Chevy on Saturday night. He started 38th and finished 32nd. His brakes failed after 131 laps. Long is the 11th driver to compete for Ware in 2014.
