RICHMOND, Va. – Kyle Busch will start from the rear for tonight’s Cup race at Richmond Raceway because of unapproved adjustments.

Three others – Daniel Suarez, Regan Smith and David Ragan – will start at the rear after their cars each failed inspection Saturday afternoon.

Busch, who is in the playoffs, hit the wall in qualifying Friday. The contact damaged the right front splitter and also the fenders on the right front and right rear. Both fenders were pushed in about an inch. The team elected to make the repairs after passing inspection. That will send him to rear of the field from his 11th starting spot before the green flag.

Suarez, who qualified fifth, will start 38th after failing inspection. Smith, who qualified 33rd, will start 39th after failing inspection. Ragan, who qualified 27th, will start 40th after failing inspection.
