NASCAR warned several Xfinity Series teams Wednesday for prerace inspection failures on the laser inspection system at Talladega Superspeedway.

The teams of Garrett Smithley, Ross Chastain, Matt Tifft, Jeb Burton, Derrike Cope and Bobby Gerhart received warnings for failing the LIS twice before Saturday’s Sparks Energy 300.

Ty Dillon’s No. 3 team also was warned for failing the LIS three times in prerace. His car will miss the first 15 minutes of practice in the circuit’s next race at Dover International Speedway.

It’s the first warning of 2016 for the teams of Smithley, Chastain, Tifft, Burton, Cope and Gerhart. Dillon’s team has two warnings.

After four cumulative warnings, a team loses pit stall selection in the next race.
