NASCAR issued the following statement:
LONG POND, Pa. — The race-winning No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing NASCAR Xfinity Series Toyota failed post-race inspection height measurements following the Pocono Green 250 Recycled by J.P. Mascaro & Sons.
Kyle Busch drove the No. 18 car to his first Xfinity Series win of the season, leading 64 laps on the day en route to the victory. The win was the second for the No. 18 car in the Xfinity Series with Ryan Preece earning a win at Bristol in April.
The car was too high in the left front, according to a NASCAR spokesperson. Last week, the No. 20 JGR team of Christopher Bell was assessed a L1-level penalty for failing post-race height measurements that resulted in a one-race suspension for crew chief Jason Ratcliff, a $10,000 fine and a loss of 10 driver and owner points.
Any potential penalties will be announced next week by the sanctioning body.
