NASCAR hit the No. 18 team in the Xfinity Series with an L1-level penalty following last weekend’s action at Pocono Raceway. The No. 18 did not meet height measurements in post-race inspection, violating Sections 188.8.131.52.1.2.a of the NASCAR Rule Book.
Crew chief Eric Phillips was fined $10,000 and suspended for the next NASCAR Xfinity Series championship points event (Saturday’s LTi Printing 250 at Michigan International Speedway). The team was also assessed with the loss of 10 owner points.
Kyle Busch drove the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota to the win at Pocono, his 92nd victory in the Xfinity Series.
