Newman, Houff fail inspection at Daytona

The No. 6 Roush Fenway Racing Ford of Ryan Newman failed pre-qualifying technical inspection twice for Saturday night’s Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway. As a result, NASCAR officials ejected engineer Travis Peterson on Friday afternoon for the remainder of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race weekend.

The No. 15 Premium Motorsports Chevrolet of Quinn Houff also failed technical inspection twice and lost car chief John Colbert.

Both teams will also lose 15 minutes of practice time at the next championship points event.
