NASCAR has seized the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series truck that was scheduled to be driven by Stewart Friesen this weekend. The truck was confiscated on Thursday morning at Kentucky Speedway.

The truck was deemed “unacceptable” by NASCAR officials on Thursday morning. Officials have said there is an issue with the rear firewall placement in relation to the rear clip of the truck.

The team had to remove the tires on the truck. Also, they had to remove the driver safety and comfort equipment on the truck, as well.

Presently, the truck is parked next to the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series hauler, according to Speed Sport. It will remain there, before moving to NASCAR’s research and development center in Concord, North Carolina.

No penalties have been announced at this time. But with the seized truck, one has to suspect that there will be penalties coming in the future.

Without this truck, the team has to use a backup truck for Freisen. As a result, he’ll have to start from the back of the field.
