Just moments after Brad Keselowski’s first win in the Camping World Truck Series at Bristol Motor Speedway, the celebration hit a sour note as Keselowski’s No.19 as well Ron Hornaday, Jr.’s No.30 and Cole Custer’s No.00 had issues in post race inspection following the rain delayed UNOH 200 on Thursday morning.
In a statement released by NASCAR. The winning truck of Keselowski, third place truck of Hornaday, and eighth place truck of Custer were “too high in the spoiler” in post race inspection.
Any penalties that will be assessed by NASCAR will be issued early next week. NASCAR eliminated its ride height rule in the Sprint Cup Series at the start of the 2014 season but the rule remains in place for the Truck and Nationwide Series.
Keselowski had the truck to beat for much of Thursday morning’s event, leading three times for a race high 119 laps, while Hornaday started third and maintained that position throughout the race. Custer started second but faded at the end to finish eighth earning his third top 10 in his five Truck Series starts.
