Following a third-place finish in the NASCAR XFINITY Series Alsco 300, Joe Gibbs Racing received a penalty from NASCAR.

The No. 20 Toyota of Christopher Bell was found in violation of sections 20.17.3.2.1.2.a and 20.17.3.2.2.2.a Post-Qualifying and PostRace Rear Body Inspection Heights, which pertain for post-qualifying and race front and rear body inspection heights. Essentially, the car did not meet the NASCAR’s allowed tolerances.

As a result, crew chief Jason Ratcliff was fined $50,000 and suspended from the next NASCAR XFINITY Series event, which is this weekend’s Pocono Green 250. Additionally, they lost 10 regular season driver and owner points.
