The portion of that rule the teams violated states, “Aerodynamic panels not permitted/engine oil reservoir tank mounting brackets/supports.”

The issue was corrected prior to the race. Sauter and Crafton finished in the top-five Friday night — Sauter in second to winner Kyle Busch after starting on the pole, and Crafton finished fourth. fourth. Ankrum was 11th, and Enfinger was 31st of the 32 trucks that started the race after involvement in a crash.

ThorSport Racing also fields the No. 99 Ford of Ben Rhodes, and GMS Racing also fields the No. 2 Chevrolet of Sheldon Creed, the No. 21 of Zane Smith and the No. 23 of Brett Moffitt. Those trucks were not in violation of the NASCAR rule book.
