The Petty GMS Motorsports No. 42 Chevrolet of Ty Dillon failed pre-qualifying inspection two times Friday at Dover Motor Speedway, resulting in the loss of pit selection and a crew-member ejection. The team will be without car chief Cam Strader for Monday’s DuraMAX Drydene 400 (noon ET, FS1, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
There were no three-time inspection failures to report from the NASCAR Cup Series garage.
UPDATE: The No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet of William Byron and the No. 77 Spire Motorsports Chevrolet of Josh Bilicki will both drop to the rear for backup cars. The No. 21 Ford of Harrison Burton, the No. 38 Ford of Todd Gilliland and the No. 45 Toyota of Kurt Busch will all drop to the rear for unapproved adjustments.
Monday’s race is the 11th this season in the Cup Series and the lone visit to Dover Motor Speedway in 2022.
