Daytona Beach, FL ( - NASCAR has penalized Kyle Larson's No. 32 team in the Nationwide Series after his car failed post-race inspection this past Saturday at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

According to a news release from NASCAR on Monday, Larson's No. 32 Turner Scott Motorsports Chevrolet failed to meet the minimum front car heights. The car was found to be too low.

Crew chief Trent Owens was fined $10,000 and placed on NASCAR probation until April 2, 2014. Larson and car owner Harry Scott received a loss of six points each. Larson finished the season eighth in the point standings.

It's the second time this year the No. 32 has been penalized for this infraction. Race officials discovered his car was too low during inspection following the Aug. 31 event at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Larson finished second at Homestead and earned rookie-of-the-year honors in Nationwide. He led the most laps with 54. Larson is moving over to the Sprint Cup Series next season to drive for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing.
