Crafton’s No. 88 ThorSport Racing Toyota was disqualified after NASCAR officials considered the vehicle was too low in the front, violating Section 14.17.3.2.1.2.A Post-Qualifying and Post-Race Front Body Inspection Heights of the NASCAR Rule Book, which states the truck must measure at a minimum height of 5.5 inches.
