The No. 98 Ford backed into the turn 2 wall with tremendous force, while the rest of the field behind him escaped without harm.
Herbst climbed out of the car under his own power, ending his day at Pocono, and recording his fourth DNF of the season.
The Las Vegas driver was seeded 13th in points following a top 10 finish in Nashville.
Entering Pocono, Herbst was scored two points behind Brandon Brown in 12th, and 42 points ahead of Ryan Sieg in 14th.
