Three cars failed post-race inspection following Thursday's Can-Am Duels at Daytona International Speedway, disallowing their finishing positions and forcing them to the rear of Sunday's Daytona 500 (2 p.m. ET, FOX, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
The No. 37 and 47 Chevrolets of Chris Buescherand AJ Allmendinger, both of JTG Daugherty Racing, and the No. 78 Furniture Row RacingToyota of Martin Truex Jr. all failed at the height station.

Truex Jr. finished seventh in Duel 1 initially, with Buescher coming in 16th in that event; Allmendinger finished fourth in Duel 2.

Truex Jr. and Allmendinger also forfeited their respective stage points for finishing their races in the top 10. Initially, Allmendinger earned seven points and Truex Jr. earned four.

I wonder what the reason for the post race inspection failure was for ? With all of these rules in place, how can a car that passed the initial inspection fail the post inspection ? Really ?
