Newman, Houff fail inspection at Kentucky

The Roush Fenway Racing No. 6 Ford of Ryan Newman failed pre-race inspection on Saturday at Kentucky Speedway. Originally slated to start 23rd, Newman will now have to move to the rear of the field to start the Quaker State 400 because the car failed the body area part of inspection.

The first 22 cars passed inspection, including pole sitter Daniel Suarez, who piloted the No. 41 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford to the top spot on Friday. It was Suarez’s second career Busch Pole Award win. Quin Houff, in the No. 77 Chevrolet, was the only other car to fail inspection.
