The No. 48 Chevrolet of Jimmie Johnson failed post-race inspection and was disqualified from the Coca-Cola 600.
Johnson had finished second Monday morning behind Brad Keselowski at Charlotte Motor Speedway. With the DQ, Johnson and his team have been relegated to a last-place finish — 40th — and earn only one point in the race.
NASCAR Cup Series managing director Jay Fabian said the car went through the Optical Scanning Station (OSS) and failed the post-race alignment numbers. The failure was in the rear alignment.
“It’s the same thing we checked at least a handful of cars for post-race after every event,” said Fabian. “I can’t really give specifics on the numbers. Yes, there is a pre-race number and a post-race number that does give a pretty tolerance (and) it was outside of those post-race numbers.”
