Earnhardt Jr and Hamlin fail post-qualifying inspection, start from rear in Bud Duels

Both Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Denny Hamlin had their qualifying times disallowed for infractions discovered during post-qualifying inspection on Sunday.

The left front of Earnhardt’s No. 88 Chevrolet measured too low in ride height. The track bar split on Hamlin’s No. 11 Toyota was three-quarters of an inch larger than the allowable 3.0 inches.

Both cars will start from the rear in their respective Budweiser Duel at Daytona qualifying races on Thursday night.

Betting effect?
Absolutely none! Both drivers have one of the better cars on the track and will have no problem making up the positions. Whether they can win or not is a different story, but whatever the case may be, do not downgrade these two because of starting from the rear.
