Two NASCAR Camping World truck teams have been penalized by NASCAR for rules infractions at Pocono Raceway.

The number 17 team was been penalized for a rules violation discovered during opening day inspection July 31 at Pocono Raceway. The infraction is a P3 level penalty and violates sections 12-1: Actions detrimental to stock car racing; and 20B-5.10.1(6): Throttle Shafts: The combined thickness of the throttle shaft and the throttle plates (butterflies) must not be less than 0.197 inch.

As a result of this violation, crew chief Paul Richmond has been fined $7,500 and placed on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31. The driver, Timothy Peters, finshed 12th in the Red Horse Racing Toyota.

The No. 6 team has been penalized for a rules violation that took place during the race on Aug. 2. The infraction is a P1 level penalty and violates sections 12-1: Actions detrimental to stock car racing, and 9-15J: Only two NASCAR-approved ½ inch drive air wrenches, with a single socket and with a hex design capable of removing or attaching one lug nut at a time, must be used to change tires/wheels during any pit stops. Apparently the team used a battery-powered impact wrench.

The team will be penalized with loss of track time during the opening practice at Michigan International Speedway Aug. 15. The driver, Norm Benning, finished 20th in his unsponsored Chevrolet.
