Shane Huffman of MDM Motorsports, the race-winning crew chief on Darrell Wallace Jr.'s No. 99 Chevrolet last weekend in Michigan, has been fined and suspended for one race.

During post-race inspection at Michigan International Speedway, vent holes on top of the truck bed were found to be improperly configured. NASCAR fined Huffman $5,000 and handed him a one-race suspension. The team also was docked 10 championship points, which does not affect its 14th-place position in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series owner standings.

Jeff Hensley, crew chief on Grant Enfinger's No. 98 ThorSport Racing Toyota, also was fined $5,000 and drew a two-race suspension for a pair of infractions at Michigan International Speedway. Post-race height measurements on the front of Enfinger's truck were outside allowed tolerances. And during pre-qualifying inspection, it was discovered that weight had been improperly affixed.

John Hankish, Enfinger's truck chief, also was dealt a two-race suspension. The team was docked 10 owner and driver championship points. The penalty drops Enfinger 24 points below the cutoff line for a playoff berth with just three races left in the regular season, including tonight's UNOH 200 at Bristol.

The team finished eighth in last weekend's LTi Printing 200.
