RELATED: Official NASCAR release
NASCAR handed down penalties Tuesday to Kyle Busch Motorsports in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series after the team's race-winning No. 51 Toyota failed a post-race technical inspection last Thursday at Kentucky Speedway.
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.
