Smith initially finished second to Carson Hocevar on Saturday at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Despite the runner-up effort, he failed to earn one of four spots vying for the championship at Phoenix Raceway. The adjustment of the finishing order and driver points did not alter the final four.
Statement from Front Row Motorsports:
“We are disappointed in the disqualification from today‘s NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series event.
“We will continue to work and discuss with NASCAR officials back at the NACAR R&D Center in Concord, N.C. before making any further comment.”
