Martin Truex Jr.’s No. 19 Toyota failed pre-race inspection twice on Sunday at Michigan International Speedway. That means the Joe Gibbs Racing driver will drop to the rear to make his 500th career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series start and lose a crew member (race engineer) for the race .
Truex was originally slated to start 15th after Busch Pole Qualifying on Friday at the 2-mile track. Michigan native Brad Keselowski will start on the pole in the No. 2 Team Penske Ford, and Kevin Harvick, in the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford, will also be on the front row.
