The violation came just before Saturday’s Busch Pole Qualifying for Monday’s FireKeepers Casino 400 (5 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN, SiriusXM) at the 2-mile track. In addition to the removal of a team engineer, Truex’s No. 19 team will also forfeit 15 minutes of practice time in the series’ next race, scheduled June 23 at Sonoma Raceway.

A NASCAR spokesperson confirmed that Truex’s car passed inspection on its third attempt. Saturday’s session serves as the final inspection before Monday’s 400-miler, with the field impounded after Saturday qualifying.
