BROOKLYN, Mich. – Martin Truex Jr. will make his 500th career Cup start from the rear of the field after his car failed inspection twice before Sunday’s race at Michigan International Speedway.
Truex was to have started 15th in the 38-car field. The team also had an engineer ejected.
They’ll join Austin Dillon and Daniel Hemric in the rear. Both Richard Childress Racing cars had their qualifying time disallowed after failing inspection after qualifying on Friday.
