Tyler Reddick’s team penalized for multiple -pre-race inspection failures

NASCAR officials announced Friday that the Richard Childress Racing No. 2 Chevrolet driven by Xfinity Series points leader Tyler Reddick was handed an L1-level penalty after failing pre-race inspection four times at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The inspection issues mean that the RCR No. 2 will not be allowed to qualify and will start at the rear of the field for Friday night’s Food City 300. Additionally, Reddick will serve a pass-through penalty with a trip down pit road after the green flag.

NASCAR officials also ejected No. 2 car chief Cam Strader for the remainder of the weekend and tacked on 10-point deductions in both the drivers standings and team owner standings.
