Five Cup Teams Lose Crew Members for COTA

NASCAR officials cited five Cup Series teams for multiple failures in Friday’s pre-qualifying inspection at the Circuit of The Americas.

The No. 78 Live Fast Motorsports Ford, driven this week by Andy Lally, failed inspection three times and will not be able to participate in Saturday’s Busch Light Pole Qualifying (11 a.m. ET, FS1). Lally will also have to make a pass-through penalty on pit road after the green flag to Sunday’s EchoPark Automotive Grand Prix (3:30 p.m. ET, FOX, PRN, SiriusXM) and had a team member (engineer) ejected.
