NASCAR said Tuesday that Hornaday and crew chief Jeff Hensley were fined because the truck had an unapproved rear-end gear ratio during last week's race.
Kevin Harvick Inc. was also docked 25 owner points for the infraction.
The penalty drops Hornaday from third to fifth in the series standings. He's 28 points behind leader Cole Whitt.
Team owner Kevin Harvick said the infraction was on a part that came from an outside supplier.
