However, Heim’s celebration was short-lived. In post-race inspection, it was discovered that the No. 11 truck had three lug nuts not securely fastened. As per Section 10.5.2.5.D in the NASCAR Rule Book, this violation led to an immediate disqualification for Heim and the Tricon Garage team.

Before the race, Corey Heim was second in the driver standings, trailing Christian Eckes by just four points. Heim also led the series in wins, boasting three victories. Unfortunately, the disqualification at Charlotte Motor Speedway will significantly impact his position in the standings.
