Todd Gilliland wheeled the No. 51 Toyota to a third-place finish in the UNOH 175. Officials discovered the alteration violating  Sections 20.15.2.2 Rear Brake Cooling Assembly

in post-race following the Camping World Truck Series event on Sept. 23.

Consequently, Crew chief Kevin Manion was fined $5,000 and suspended from the next truck race which was Las Vegas. However, since the penalty was under appeal, Manion did not serve his time. The team was also assessed with the loss of 10 driver points and 10 owner points.

After hearing the case, the NMAP which consisted of Dixon Johnston, Bill Mullis and Buddy Parrott determined: 1) The Appellants violated the Rules set forth in the Penalty Notice. 2) The Panel affirms and upholds the original Penalties assessed by NASCAR.

KBM can appeal the decision of the NMAP to the National Motorsports Final Appeals Officer in accordance with Section 15 of the NASCAR Rule Book.
