BROOKLYN, Mich. — official release — NASCAR photo — For the third time in the past five races, a Kyle Busch Motorsports truck had something in post-race inspection that caught the eye of NASCAR.
On Saturday at Michigan, it was a triangular filler panel from Kyle Busch’s No. 51 Toyota that will be taken back to the NASCAR Research & Development Center in Concord, North Carolina, for further review.
Busch finished fifth in in the Careers for Veterans 200 at the 2-mile Michigan International Speedway.
At Kentucky on June 26, Busch’s race-winning truck came in too low. At Iowa on July 11, Erik Jones’ race-winning truck also came in too low (he was driving the No. 51 for KBM at Iowa). The penalties fell under the heading of a P2 under NASCAR’s new deterrence system.
