BRISTOL, Tenn. – Daniel Hemric’s No. 21 Chevrolet failed post-race inspection following Saturday’s Xfinity Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway, but after further review NASCAR ruled that his Dash 4 Cash eligibility for next week’s race at Richmond Raceway was unaffected.

Hemric’s No. 21 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet was found to have an issue with mechanical measurement. He initially was ruled out of the Dash 4 Cash field for sixth-place finisher Brandon Jones.

However, after review, NASCAR determined that the failure during post-race inspection at Bristol did not rise to the level of a penalty. That means Hemric, Justin Allgaier, Elliott Sadler and Spencer Gallagher will run for the $100,000 Dash 4 Cash prize in the series’ next race, Friday’s ToyotaCare 250 (7 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN, SiriusXM) at Richmond Raceway.

No other issues were found during post-race inspection; the winning No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota of Ryan Preece, as well as Allgaier’s No. 7 JR Motorsports Chevrolet will be returning to the NASCAR Research & Development Center in Concord, North Carolina.
