UPDATE: NASCAR errs in penalty to Daniel Hemric, reverses decision and makes him eligible again for Dash 4 Cash at Richmond

BRISTOL, Tenn. – Daniel Hemric has been replaced in next week’s Dash 4 Cash field at Richmond by Brandon Jones because Hemric’s car failed inspection after Saturday’s race at Bristol.

NASCAR stated only that Hemric’s car failed “mechanical measurement.” The team could face further penalties next week.

A spokesperson for Richard Childress Racing told NBC Sports on Saturday that the team had no comment at the time.

Hemric finished third. Jones placed sixth to winner Ryan Preece.

Those racing for the Dash 4 Cash $100,000 bonus at Richmond will be Elliott Sadler, Spencer Gallagher, Justin Allgaier and Jones.
