NASCAR officials disqualified the No. 18 Kyle Busch Motorsports entry driven by Chandler Smith in Saturday’s Camping World Truck Series race at Watkins Glen International.

Smith drove the No. 18 KBM Toyota to an 18th-place finish in Saturday’s United Rentals 176 at The Glen. Smith’s truck, however, failed the height requirement in post-race inspection.

The ruling demoted Smith to last place in the 40-vehicle field, but does not impact his eligibility for the Camping World Trucks playoffs. Smith qualified for the 10-driver postseason grid as the last driver to earn a playoff berth on the basis of points.

Smith, a nine-time winner in the ARCA Menards Series, is in his first full season of Camping World Trucks competition.
