SHR’s No. 4 Fails Duel Post-Race Inspection

Stewart Haas Racing’s No. 4 Chevy, driven by Kevin Harvick, failed post-race inspection after finishing second in the Budweiser Duel.

Greg Zipadelli of SHR offered an explanation:

The track bar had more rake in it than allowed after the qualifying race. [John] Darby and them are up top; we’ll wait for them to come down and see what it is. I guess they’re telling us we’re starting at the rear. It’s one of those areas. There’s a rule, it’s three inches. Everybody in the garage has adjusted their cars during the race and it’s never been an issue afterward. But I mean it’s a different deal here. We need to figure that stuff out on our side and make sure we don’t put ourselves in this position again.
