HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Earnhardt Ganassi Racing has fired two team members who have been charged with trafficking in marijuana.
Trevor Lysne and Jerome David Frey appeared in North Carolina Superior Court on Wednesday to face charges. The team fired them later in the day.
Lysne was a tire changer on the crew for Juan Pablo Montoya. Frey was a mechanic with the NASCAR team.
The two were arrested Tuesday after Huntersville police seized 10.5 pounds of marijuana that had been shipped from California.
Lysne was charged with trafficking marijuana, maintaining a dwelling to sell a controlled substance and being in possession with intent to distribute and sell marijuana.
Frey was charged with one count of trafficking marijuana and one count of intent to sell and distribute marijuana.
Team owner Chip Ganassi said in a statement he has a zero tolerance policy and was disappointed by the arrests.
