Kyle Busch will drop to the rear due to unapproved adjustments ahead of the start for Sunday evening’s NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs race at Darlington Raceway (6 p.m. ET, USA, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, NBC Sports App).
The two-time Cup champion qualified 11th for the Southern 500 but had a moment during Saturday’s practice session that saw the No. 8 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet tap the wall in Turns 3 and 4.
Busch enters the 2023 postseason fifth in the playoff standings and 12 points above the Round of 12 elimination line.
