Blaney car fails post race inspection at Bristol

BRISTOL, Tenn. -- The No. 22 Team Penske Ford of driver Ryan Blaney failed post-race technical inspection following Saturday's Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300 NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The car measured too low in the left front, according to a NASCAR spokesperson. Any penalties arising from the failure will likely be determined and announced Tuesday.

Blaney led four times for 61 laps. As a full-time competitor in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, Blaney is not awarded points for his results in the XFINITY Series, however the No. 22 team is competing for the owner's title.

The race winning entry of Erik Jones (Joe Gibbs Racing) passed post-race at-track inspection, as did the entries of Daniel Hemric (Richard Childress Racing) and Justin Allgaier (JR Motorsports).

The Hemric and Allgaier entries finished highest among those competing for the XFINITY Series Dash 4 Cash bonus and will be taken back to the NASCAR Research & Development Center in Concord, North Carolina for further evaluation.
