DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – NASCAR has penalized the No. 17 Red Horse Racing Camping World Truck Series team for rule violations last weekend at Pocono Raceway.

The roof on Timothy Peters' Toyota failed to meet the minimum height requirement during post-race inspection following his 14th-place finish in the Pocono Mountains 125.  Crew chief Butch Hylton has been fined $5,000.  Peters and team owner Tom DeLoach have each been docked six championship points.

Red Horse Racing will not appeal the penalty, saying in a statement:

"Our race team respects NASCAR and the way our sport is governed by the sanctioning body.  We fully acknowledge that the (truck) was too low in post-race inspection because of a shock malfunction.  Red Horse Racing accepts NASCAR's penalty."

The loss of points will drop Peters from eighth to 10th in the standings.  The Camping World Truck Series is idle this weekend, returning to action next week at Michigan International Speedway.
