Riley Herbst‘s team was penalized Friday night for improperly mounted ballast on his No. 18 Toyota before the Xfinity Series race at Daytona International Speedway.

In addition to losing 10 driver and owner points, Herbst’s car chief, John Egbert, was ejected from the race. Herbst had to start from the rear of the field and had to serve a pass-through penalty at the start of the race.

Herbst would have started 10th. Herbst bounced back to finish fourth.
