LONG POND, Pa. -- NASCAR confiscated the carburetor base plate from the No. 17 Red Horse Racing Camping World Truck Series Toyota Tundra, driven by Timothy Peters, on Thursday during opening-day inspection at Pocono Raceway.
The part will be taken back to NASCAR's Research and Development Center for further evaluation.
Peters, who led the points after the first two races of the season, has dropped to eighth as the series. The No. 17 driver topped Friday's final Truck Series practice as he prepares for its 11th race of the season on Saturday (1 p.m. ET, FOX Sports 1).
