The No. 51 Camping World series team of Daniel Suarez has been docked 10 championship owners points and crew chief Kevin “Bono” Manion has been fined $6,000 and put on probation through Dec. 31 following the Dover race weekend.

The penalty was issued after the No. 51’s tailgate height failed post-race inspection. Suarez finished second at Dover.

One team in both the Xfinity and Camping World Truck Series were given written warnings.

Joe Gibbs Racing’s No. 18 Xfinity team of Matt Tifft was given its second warning of the season after failing the Laser Inspection Station twice before the race.

In the Truck Series, the No. 07 team of C.J. Faison was given it first warning for a truck trailing arm not meeting specifications in opening-day inspection.

If a team receives four warnings, they lose pit selection for the next race.

A crew member for the No. 25 Xfinity team of Ryan Ellis has been fined $1,000 for failure to “properly wear or secure mandatory safety apparel or equipment.”
