The No. 10 Ford to be driven by Aric Almirola this weekend at the Monster Mile failed inspection twice ahead of Friday’s Busch Pole Qualifying. As a result, competition officials ejected car chief Chad Haney, sidelining him for the rest of the race weekend.

Almirola sits in a tie for 10th place with SHR teammate Clint Bowyer in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series standings. He was 12th-fastest in Friday’s opening practice at the 1-mile track. He later qualified seventh for Monday’s race.
