No. 1 Fails Inspection, Is Impounded

NASCAR.com is reporting that Dale Earnhardt Inc.’s No 1 Chevy, driven by Martin Truex Jr., failed inspection before practice at Daytona International Speedway.

The car’s roof did not fit the NASCAR inspection templates. The team was given another shot to fit in the templates; it failed again.

NASCAR impounded the car and took it to their research & development center in North Carolina.

The No. 1 Chevy will be using their backup car.

No word on penalties, yet.
