NASCAR announced Friday morning that it has confiscated wheels used by Team Penske and RFK Racing during practice  at Daytona International Speedway.

Team Penske drivers include Joey Logano, Austin Cindric, Ryan Blaney and Harrison Burton (for the Wood Brothers). RFK Racing drivers are Brad Keselowski and Chris Buescher.

In depth details on why the Penske and RFK Racing wheels were confiscated were revealed on the eve of Daytona 500 via Fox NASCAR reporter Bob Pockrass , however  NASCAR did not indicate how many wheels were taken or from which cars.

Why did they (NASCAR) confiscate them ?  well they have video evidence of a mechanic from one of those teams working in the pinholes of the wheels, said Pockrass. What would that do and what were they doing ? if they are grinding inside the pinholes that could potentially make the pinholes bigger which would make it easier to put the wheels on and take them off the car. –

According to Bob Pockrass NASCAR has already inform teams earlier this year that they are taking a no-nonsense approach and higher penalties for parts team acquire from vendors.
