DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Feb. 19, 2009) -- NASCAR announced today penalties and fines to the No. 33 team that competes in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, as a result of rule infractions found last Friday at Daytona International Speedway.

The No. 33 truck was found to be in violation of Section 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing); Section 12-4-1 (any determination by NASCAR Officials that the race equipment used in the event does not conform to NASCAR rules); and Section 20B-12.3B (all approved shock absorbers must be of nitrogen-gas pressurized mono-tube, deflective disc valve type with an integral gas reservoir with all components as displayed on each manufacturer's display board: unapproved shock absorber piston) of the 2009 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series rule book. The violations were found during post-race inspection on Feb. 13.

Driver Ron Hornaday Jr. has been penalized with the loss of 25 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship driver points and truck owner DeLana Harvick has been penalized 25 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship owner points due to the violations. Crew chief Rick Ren has been fined $5,000 and placed on probation until June 30, 2009 as a result of the infraction.
