NASCAR has handed out penalties to Busch and the No. 41 team after failing a post-race inspection at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday.
The track bar on the No. 41 car was found to be above the 3-inch maximum separation allowed under NASCAR rules, and Busch has lost 10 championship driver points as a result. Owner Gene Haas was also docked 10 points in the owner standings, and crew chief Daniel Knost has been fined $10,000.
