NASCAR penalizes Hornaday for Charlotte infraction

NASCAR has docked Ron Hornaday 25 points and fined his crew
chief $10,000 for failing inspection after the Trucks Series race
at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

NASCAR said Tuesday that Hornaday and crew chief Jeff Hensley
were fined because the truck had an unapproved rear-end gear ratio
during last week’s race.

Kevin Harvick Inc. was also docked 25 owner points for the
infraction.

The penalty drops Hornaday from third to fifth in the series
standings. He’s 28 points behind leader Cole Whitt.

Team owner Kevin Harvick said the infraction was on a part that
came from an outside supplier.
