Windshield Support Violation

After the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Playoff race at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Zane Smith has been disqualified for a windshield violation. The windshield on the 2022 Camping World Truck Series champion’s truck was visibly flexing during the race.


Carson Hocevar ended up winning the race and Zane Smith was P2. Smith had to win to advance to Phoenix for the Championship 4. While this DQ moves drivers up one spot, it will not change who made the Championship 4 race.


Since Nick Sanchez and Ben Rhodes are tied on points after the DQ, Rhodes still advances over Sanchez.

NASCAR doesn’t take these DQs lightly. The No. 38 truck is going to go to the R&D Center. I suspect that NASCAR will try and determine why the windshield was flexing. Whether or not it was an intentional violation or just an accidental one.


Depending on what NASCAR finds in their inspection at the R&D Center, we may see a penalty or a fine for the No. 38 Front Row Motorsports team.


“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” Front Row Motorsports


Carson Hocevar (the race winner) will battle with Corey Heim, Grant Enfinger, and Ben Rhodes (former champion) in Phoenix for the 2023 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Championship.
