NASCAR announced late Saturday afternoon that the No. 13 Truck of Johnny Sauter has been disqualified from the Vet Tix Camping World 200 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway after failing post-race inspection.
Sauter’s truck was disqualified for what a NASCAR statement called “a race tire violation.”
Sauter’s original finish of 17th has been changed to last in the 40-car field.
Two other trucks — the No. 18 of third-place finisher Christian Eckes and the No. 56 of 22nd-place finisher Timmy Hill — were penalized for having “one lug nut not safe and secure,” according to NASCAR.
Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series managing director Brad Moran is expected to address reporters after this afternoon’s Xfinity Series race.
