The crew chief of the Kyle Busch Motorsports’ No. 51 in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the owner have been penalized after a post-race inspection found the truck too low.
The owner of the truck, Kyle Busch, drove it to Victory Lane after dominating Thursday night’s UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway.
The infraction violates the 2014 NASCAR rule book in Section 20B-12.8.1 (truck failed to meet post-race height requirements).
Crew Chief Eric Phillips has been fined $5,000 and owner Kyle Busch lost six championship truck owner points.
Busch won his fifth truck race of the season June 26. He’s won every truck series race he’s entered as a driver this season.
