Young Motorsports crew chief suspended after Talladega incident

Truck Series crew chief Eddie Troconis has been suspended indefinitely for violating the NASCAR behavioral policy.

The 42-year-old’s suspension came as a result of breaching NASCAR’s policy that indicates “Member-to-Member confrontation(s) with physical violence and other violent manifestations such as significant threat(s) and/or abuse and/or endangerment.”

Troconis, has been serving the current season in Young Motorsports as crew chief for driver Kris Wright in the Truck Series and as crew chief for part of the year for driver Josh Williams in the Xfinity Series.

According to reliable sources, Troconis was involved in a physical altercation with a member of another team last Saturday night at Talladega Superspeedway, which is what led to his suspension.

Young’s Motorsports did not comment on Troconis’ suspension.

Troconis has been a crew chief for 142 races over nine seasons in the Truck Series with two wins – in 2017 and 2018 with driver Ben Rhodes. He has also served as a crew chief in the Xfinity Series in a total of 20 races with five different drivers.
