On Tuesday, the No. 33 GMS Racing Chevrolet team of driver Brandon Jones in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series made an appeal to the National Motorsports Appeals Panel with the hopes of having NASCAR penalties reduced or overturned. The team was penalized on Oct. 28 because of an issue with illegal brackets/supports on the truck that were discovered during pre-qualifying inspection during the Oct. 24 race weekend at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway. Jones finished second to winner Timothy Peters in the race.
The original penalty NASCAR handed the No. 33 team included a $10,000 fine, three-race suspension and six months of probation for crew chief Shane Huffman; the loss of 25 driver championship points for Jones and 25 owner points for truck owner Maurice Gallagher Jr.
