Both Front Row Motorsports cars were found Saturday afternoon with trunk lids that did not meet regulatory specifications, and both teams were penalized prior to today’s race at Daytona International Speedway.
Only NASCAR-approved trunk lid extensions are allowed. Because of the violation, the crew chiefs of Teams 34 and 38 (Drew Blickensderfer and Seth Barbour) were kicked out, and both cars will start at the bottom of the field. NASCAR may impose more penalties next week.
Jason Sheets, Michael McDowell’s auto boss, will serve as interim crew chief on the Coke Zero Sugar 400.
Front Row Competition Director Derrick Finley will serve as Interim crew chief for rookie Anthony Alfredo will act.
In addition, pole sitter and championship leader Kyle Larson will start at the bottom of the field. Larson’s # 5 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet failed inspection several times. No. 7 by Corey LaJoie, No. 15 by Joey Gase and No. 16 by Kaz Grala also start from behind.
