The National Motorsports Final Appeals Officer, Bryan Moss, upheld NASCAR’s L1 penalty against ThorSport Racing’s No. 41 team from the Camping World Truck Series’ season-opener at Daytona International Speedway.

The appeal heard by Moss was the last one available to the team.

NASCAR penalized Ben Rhodes’ No. 41 team for post-race body inspection heights being outside allowable tolerances.

Crew chief Eddie Troconis will be fined $5,000 and suspended for the May 4 race at Dover. NASCAR also docked Rhodes 10 points and the team 10 owner points.

With the point penalty, Rhodes will drop from fourth to fifth in the standings, behind Noah Gragson.
