NASCAR Penalizes KBM’s No. 51 Truck
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports team that competes in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series has been penalized for a rules infraction discovered in post-race inspection June 26 at Kentucky Speedway.
The infraction is a P2 level penalty and violates Section 20B-12.8.1 (truck failed to meet post-race height requirements) of the 2014 NASCAR rule book. As a result, crew chief Eric Phillips has been fined $5,000 and owner Kyle Busch has been penalized with the loss of six championship truck owner points.
Busch drove to a dominant victory in Thursday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, leading 91 of 150 laps en route to his fifth victory in as many Truck Series starts this season.
