Two penalties have been issued ahead of the green flag at Dover International Speedway, car chiefs ejected
The following report was released by NASCAR 30 minutes ahead of Sunday’s green flag in Dover, Delaware. Bowman and Larson will both start from the tail of the field and car chiefs from both teams have been ejected from the speedway grounds.
Before the penalty, Larson #42 was positioned to lead them to the green after his qualifying effort on Friday at Dover International Speedway.
Busch Pole winner Kyle Larson will start Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race from the rear after his No. 42 Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet failed pre-race inspection three times.
Alex Bowman, who qualified 15th, is in a similar position after his No. 88 Chevrolet also failed three times. He will also start from the rear.
Both teams also had their car chiefs ejected — Austin R. Konetski on the No. 42 and David L. Bryant with the No. 88.
In addition, both teams will have to serve a 30-minute hold for the first practice next weekend at Kansas Speedway.
Austin Dillon’s No. 3 car will also start from the back for having a non-compliant splitter.
