CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR has penalized the Truck Series team Michael Waltrip drove for at Daytona International Speedway.
Waltrip won the season-opening truck race for Vision Aviation Racing. NASCAR found that his spoiler had broken over the closing laps.
NASCAR on Wednesday fined crew chief Doug Howe $25,000 and placed him on probation until Dec. 31.
Team owner Billy Ballew was docked 25 championship owner points.
Waltrip was not docked any points because he did not receive any for the event. He's only collecting points in the Sprint Cup Series this season.
