Four cars will also be moving to the rear for multiple pre-race inspection failures. They are:

–No. 7 Spire Motorsports Chevrolet of Corey LaJoie (was going to start 26th)
–No. 37 JTG Daugherty Racing Chevrolet of Ryan Preece (was going to start 25th)

Preece, a Connecticut native, won the Whelen Modified Tour race on Saturday with a third-to-first move on the final corner at New Hampshire.
