NASCAR stripped KBM of six points in the series' team owner championship standings for violating a minimum ride height rule. It also issued a $5,000 fine for crew chief Eric Phillips for the P2 level infraction.

Owner/driver Busch led 91 of 150 laps in the UNOH 225 on the 1.5-mile track, recording his fifth victory in five appearances in the Camping World Truck Series. His truck, however, was found to be too low in the front during a post-race inspection.

While NASCAR has eliminated restrictions on ride heights in its premier Sprint Cup Series, rules remain in place for Nationwide Series and truck teams.

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returns to action July 11 at Iowa Speedway for the American Ethanol 200, the ninth of 22 races this season.
