Earnhardt's No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet was too low in the left-front during post-race inspection. Although NASCAR last year eliminated the minimum ride-height rules at most tracks, Daytona and Talladega Superspeedway still have ride-height rules in place. Earnhardt will start 25th in the first Duel on Thursday night.
Denny Hamlin's No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota exceeded the maximum split for the rear track bar, which is limited to 3 inches. The split on Hamlin's car was measured at 3.75 inches. Hamlin will start 24th in the second Duel. (FOX Sports)
