NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series managing director Seth Kramlich was arrested and charged with DWI on Saturday morning.
Seth Kramlich won’t be present for the last two NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series events after he was taken into custody early on Saturday morning and charged with DWI in North Carolina.
Kramlich’s arrest was first reported by Fox Sports’ Bob Pockrass, who broke the news. Kramlich was appointed to take over as Managing Director of the Truck Series in 2022.
Brad Moran’s promotion to the same role at the Cup Series level prompted the appointment of Kramlich to the Truck series. He previously served as the Xfinity Series Assistant Director before his appointment as the Craftsman Truck Series Managing Director.
Kramlich will be replaced by Wayne Auton, the Managing Director of the Xfinity Series. This means Auton will be on double duty for the two coming races.
He joined NASCAR in 2014 after working at Washington’s Evergreen Speedway. He has previous professional experience working in NASCAR race environments, in Race Operations, and alongside officials. He started working in the Xfinity Series in 2019 before being promoted to the Truck Series’ top position.
Kramlich’s arrest comes after two NASCAR drivers were arrested in separate incidents within the same week back in August and both were charged with a DWI.
The NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series has only two more events remaining this season. This weekend, they will be racing at Homestead-Miami as Phoenix Raceway hosts the season’s finale and Seth Kramlich will be absent.
