A suspension looks to be in order for a few members of Bubba Wallace's team.

Wallace lost a wheel in turn 16 at the Circuit of the America's race on Sunday, which goes against NASCAR rules. It's most likely going to lead to a four-race suspension for Wallace’s crew chief and two other crew members.

The penalty definitely seems a bit steep, but that's due to how fast the wheel can go once it flies off. Who knows what it will hit/run into?

The wheel could also just sit on the track which means it could cause a wreck towards other cars who are coming in so quickly.

Wallace ended up having a DNF to this race (did not finish) due to him losing a wheel. Ross Chastain looks to be in line to win this race with five laps to go.

You can watch the rest of this race on FOX.
