Reddick, a Cup Series regular, had driven the No. 23 to an apparent second-place result at the checkered flag in the Contender Boats 250. But his car failed the rear height requirement in post-race technical inspection, dropping Reddick to last in the 40-car field.

All other finishers move up one position, which elevates Brandon Jones to a runner-up placement behind first-time race winner Myatt Snider.
