NASCAR Inspection Rules (Pre-Qualifying)
1 Inspection failure: No penalty, the team gets to go to the back of the inspection line and try again.
2 inspection failures: If a team fails twice, NASCAR will eject a crew member and they drop to the rear.
3 inspection failures: All of the above. They’ll also serve a pass-through penalty at the start of the race.
