NASCAR officials threw out the qualifying speeds of both Richard Childress Racing entries Friday after the two cars were found with unapproved alternators at Michigan International Speedway.
The No. 3 Chevrolet of Austin Dillon had qualified seventh and teammate Daniel Hemric’s No. 8 Chevy was 11th in Busch Pole Qualifying for Sunday’s Consumers Energy 400. But officials disallowed both qualifying speeds after an inspection revealed the alternator infraction.
In addition, each crew chief will be fined $25,000 and 10 points will be deducted from the driver and owner standings for each team.
