JGR cars sent back through Talladega qualifying inspection
TALLADEGA, Ala. -- NASCAR asked three Joe Gibbs Racing teams to make adjustments on their Toyotas just before Coors Light Pole Award qualifying Saturday at Talladega Superspeedway . The cars driven by reigning Sprint Cup champion Kyle Busch and his JGR teammates Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth were flagged in the minutes before qualifying. As the cars were being rolled out to the track, NASCAR noticed the right rear quarter panels had been manipulated around the deck lid area. NASCAR inspectors pulled the cars out of line, and the teams corrected the issue before going back through tech. Kenseth led the team with a third-place qualifying effort and will start Sunday's Hellmann's 500 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup race (2 p.m. ET, NBCSN, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) from the second row. Hamlin will start eighth. Busch will begin 14th . Carl Edwards , who drove the only JGR car not tagged at inspection, will start 13th . However, Edwards' No. 19 team did lose its pit stall selection for a fourth warning related to inspections. Kenseth's team lost its pit stall selection for the same reason. "The bodies on these cars can be pushed and prodded and these teams are very smart at the areas … for a bunch of little gains," NASCAR's Senior Vice President for Competition Scott Miller said. "It's nothing huge but it's our job to make sure it's even across the board and that's what we do. A little infraction is an infraction, right? "The quarter panels appeared to have been messed with around the deck lid and we brought them back in and rectified it." Busch said after qualifying that he wasn't too concerned with the situation. "Not my problem," Busch said. "I just worry about driving and doing the best I can do there, so did everything right and we ended up exactly where we thought we were going to -- 14th -- so we'll take it. That's fine and we'll go racing tomorrow and see what happens from there." He said his No. 18 Snickers Halloween Toyota didn't really feel any different from Friday practice to Saturday qualifying. "Everything was really the same, you know?" Busch said. "We did some single-car stuff yesterday just barely. Didn't really do a full mock run or anything and taping it down or anything like that, but knew we had decent speed ." "... We'd love to be able to finish these things and that's all we've got to worry about tomorrow is being able to capture the right amount of points and be able to move on." &amp;lt;/p&amp;gt;
Truex tames Talladega for Coors Light Pole Award
RELATED: Qualifying results " See every car in the field TALLADEGA, Ala. – Just 13 points to the good entering Sunday's Round of 12 cutoff race in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup , Martin Truex Jr . gave himself as much of a cushion as possible, winning the pole for the Hellman's 500 at Talladega Superspeedway during Saturday’s knockout qualifying session. Seventh in the Chase standings, and 13 points ahead of Joey Logano and Austin Dillon , Truex covered the 2.66-mile distance in 49.508 seconds (193.423 mph) to claim the Coors Light Pole Award for Sunday's race (2 p.m. ET on NBCSN, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) that will trim the Chase field from 12 drivers to eight. "It's definitely cool," said Truex, who has never won a restrictor-plate race in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. "You come here, and you don't really have a whole lot to say as a driver when it comes to qualifying, so obviously proud of the team and proud of everybody in Denver (Colorado) and proud of everybody at the race track for their efforts. "Built a brand new car to come here, and it's awesome to be the fastest guy in town. Excited about that, and obviously everybody at TRD (Toyota Racing Development) who builds the engines has done a great job too – it takes a lot to get a restrictor plate pole, so excited for all those guys and really neat to lead Toyota to their 1,000th start (in NASCAR’s top three series combined). Hopefully, we'll be able to get the victory when the day is over." Truex didn't allow a pre-qualifying inspection issue to derail his effort. Before his No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Toyota rolled out onto the grid, NASCAR confiscated a non-conforming jack screw from the car and required the team to replace it with a legal part. RELATED: NASCAR confiscates part from 78 team The pole was Truex's first at Talladega, his fourth of the season and the 11th of his career. Truex was .015 seconds faster than four-time Talladega winner Brad Keselowski (193.365 mph), who will start on the outside of the front row. Keselowski is 11th in the standings, seven points behind Logano and Dillon. "It's good to qualify up front," Keselowski said. "I think it's a good confidence boost. I feel like when we have cars that qualify well here, we race well. The Miller Lite Ford was really fast here in qualifying, and hopefully it will stay the same for Sunday. "It's been a good track for us, but past success is no guarantee. You have to go out and put the work in, and I think we're ready to do just that." Chase drivers Matt Kenseth (193.189 mph) and Chase Elliott (193.166 mph) will start third and fourth, respectively. Elliott is 12th in the Chase standings, likely needing a victory in Sunday's race to advance to the Round of 8. "As we all know, qualifying here is all about the guys back in the shop preparing these cars," Elliott said. "The Hendrick Engine shop gave me great speed , and the guys gave me an excellent car for tomorrow. "Qualifying here at Talladega isn't a make-or-break-you deal. I think it's good. I think our car has decent speed , and hopefully that will show up on Sunday." Roush Fenway racing drivers Greg Biffle and Ricky Stenhouse Jr ., both non-Chasers, will start from the third row after qualifying fifth and sixth, respectively. Other Chase drivers qualified as follows: Kurt Busch (seventh), Denny Hamlin (eighth), Dillon (ninth), Carl Edwards (13th), Kyle Busch (14th), Joey Logano (16th), Jimmie Johnson (17th) and Kevin Harvick (22nd). Johnson and Harvick already have earned spots in the Round of 8 by virtue of their respective victories at Charlotte and Kansas, leaving six berths available to the remaining 10 drivers. Reed Sorenson , who was required to make the field on the basis of qualifying time, posted an eyebrow-raising lap of 194.145 mph to lead the first round, a sizable .326 seconds faster than the next-fastest driver, Truex. Sorenson's Premium Motorsports No. 55 Toyota faded considerably in the final round and will start 12th. David Gilliland failed to qualify for the 40-car field. NASCAR will meet and discuss the non-conforming jack screw on Truex's car during its weekly competition meeting, but Scott Miller, NASCAR's senior vice president of competition, characterized the imposition of a points penalty that would affect the Chase standings as "unlikely." "I would say it would be unlikely, but it has to go through our process," Miller said. "We don't typically do that on a weekend, and because this is the playoffs, everybody has a heightened sense of everything. "But this is really no different than things that we've done all year. We'll treat this one like just like we've done all year long." Three Joe Gibbs Racing cars -- those of Kyle Busch , Denny Hamlin and Kenseth -- were pulled from the qualifying line just before their speed attempts. NASCAR officials said that they were investigating a potential issue with the rear deck lid and quarter panel area. With those issues remedied behind the wall, all three were allowed to qualify.

Kyle Busch paces opening practice at Kansas
RELATED: Practice 1 results " Best 10-lap averages " Chase Grid Defending champion Kyle Busch landed atop the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series leaderboard Friday afternoon in opening practice at Kansas Speedway . Busch ripped off a lap of 194.595 mph around the 1.5-mile track in the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 18 Toyota. His speed slightly slower than the track qualifying record of 197.612 mph, set by Kevin Harvick in October 2014. His brother, Kurt Busch , was second-fastest in the 70-minute session with a best lap of 194.119 mph in the Stewart-Haas Racing No. 41 Chevrolet. Carl Edwards was third-fastest at 194.098 mph in the Gibbs No. 19 Toyota in opening prep for Sunday's Hollywood Casino 400 (2:15 p.m. ET, NBC, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio), the fifth of 10 races in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup playoffs. Alex Bowman , scheduled for his sixth Sprint Cup start of the season in place of Dale Earnhardt Jr ., was fourth-fastest in the Hendrick Motorsports No. 88 Chevrolet. Teammate Chase Elliott , a top Sunoco Rookie of the Year candidate, completed the top five in his No. 24 Chevy (194.056 mph). The cars of Kyle Busch , a first-time Kansas winner in May, and Kyle Larson were both held in the garage for 30 minutes as a penalty for post-race actions in last weekend's Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway . NASCAR competition officials had warned teams three weeks ago in the drivers' and crew chiefs' meeting at New Hampshire Motor Speedway to avoid taking measures on the cool-down lap that might circumvent the post-race Laser Inspection Station (LIS) platform. "We told them then that we would look at our resources after the races and we've been doing that," said Scott Miller, NASCAR Senior Vice President of Competition. "They swerved. That's about all there is to it." The cars of Tony Stewart , Regan Smith , Paul Menard and Kasey Kahne were also held 15 minutes on pit road for an accumulation of written warnings and minor infractions. The practice session began 20 minutes after its scheduled 1 p.m. ET start time because of persistent damp conditions after a morning rain. To allow teams more practice time, the end of the session was extended five minutes to 2:30 p.m. ET. Martin Truex Jr ., set to make his 400th premier-series start Sunday, was seventh-fastest in the Furniture Row Racing No. 78 Toyota (193.882 mph). Jimmie Johnson , last weekend's winner in Charlotte, was eighth-best on the early leaderboard in his No. 48 HMS Chevy (193.653 mph). &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;/p&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;

No. 78 part confiscated in pre-qualifying inspection at Talladega
RELATED: Truex scores pole for Talladega TALLADEGA, Ala. -- Martin Truex Jr . will start on the pole in Sunday’s Hellmann’s 500 (2 p.m. ET, NBCSN, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Talladega Superspeedway . It was clear sailing around the 2.66-mile track for the driver of the No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Toyota on Saturday. Meanwhile, dark clouds had gathered elsewhere. NASCAR officials confiscated the left-front jack bolt from the team during pre-qualifying inspection, and will take the piece back to the sanctioning body’s Research and Development Center in Concord, North Carolina. "They had a jack bolt that we didn’t feel like met specifications that we have in the rule book," Scott Miller, Senior Vice President of Competition for NASCAR, said. "Not a real competitive advantage. We will take it back … analyze everything and decide what we are going to do. "It's no different than … cars that fail the templates and have to go back through. It's our job to officiate the sport and this part and the rest of today’s activities are no different than what we do every weekend." RELATED: JGR cars have to go back through inspection Crew chief Cole Pearn said the bolt was the wrong size, not hollow as was initially reported. "It was a mistake," he said. "We fixed it; we found another one and moved on. Stuff like that happens all the time. We're not perfect. I know people like to think that we’re brilliant geniuses that have malicious plans to cheat the system somehow, but sometimes we're just stupid and make mistakes. "That's really just what happened and hopefully it doesn't turn into anything more than that." Miller said such a violation could result in a points penalty, impacting the team’s Chase status, but that it wasn't always the case. "I would say it would be unlikely but it has to go through our process," he said. "We don't typically do that on a weekend. Because this is the playoffs everybody has a heightened sense of everything but this is no different than things we have done all year and we will treat this one just like we do all year long." Both Pearn and NASCAR said that the issue was only with one bolt. "All other three corners were fine," Pearn said. "We're at Talladega; maybe if you're at Martinsville, and you have all four hollowed out …" Truex edged fellow Chase driver Brad Keselowski ( Team Penske No. 2 Ford) for the top spot. Matt Kenseth ( Joe Gibbs Racing ), Chase Elliott ( Hendrick Motorsports ) and Greg Biffle ( Roush Fenway Racing ) completed the top five as the lineup for the 40-car field was set. "All the crazy talk going on today is nonsense," Truex said. "I think people speculate on things and don't really know what they are. "The jack bolt issues is really not a big issue. It's not hollow like what was reported. (NASCAR) didn't take both, they just took the left front so it's not a big issue." The 78 team did lose its pit stall selection for a fourth warning related to inspections.

Heads up: Talladega weekend
Here are the hot topics, trending news and key story lines to get you ready for this weekend's races at Talladega Superspeedway . WEATHER Can you say "Chamber of Commerce weather?" That's what you'll get at Talladega. It'll be sunny all weekend, with a high of 70 on Friday and a high of 68 on Saturday, with the temperature nosing up to 77 degrees on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service. Beautiful outlook for a pair of elimination races. KEY TIMES Sprint Cup Series: The biggest change this weekend is Coors Light Qualifying. Rather than qualifying on Friday, the Sprint Cup Series will do so on Saturday afternoon after the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race. The single-car spectacle is set for 4 p.m. ET on NBCSN. The race is Sunday at 2 p.m. ET, also on NBCSN. Camping World Truck Series: The Camping World Truck Series has a pair of Friday practices (beginning at 1 p.m. ET and 3 p.m. ET, both on FS1). The race is Saturday at 1 p.m. ET on FOX with Keystone Light Pole Qualifying just before at 10:30 a.m. ET (FS1). CATCH DRIVERS LIVE We'll stream every driver press conference in the Talladega media center at NASCAR.com/presspass . Among the notables Friday: Chase Elliott (12:30 p.m. ET), Joey Logano (12:45 p.m. ET) and Martin Truex Jr . (3:30 p.m. ET). Click here for a full schedule. LAST TIME Joey Logano swept the Round of 12 last year, beating Alabama's favorite son Dale Earnhardt Jr . -- and eliminating him from the Chase -- in the process. The Team Penske driver led 20 laps to Earnhardt Jr.'s 61, and he held off Junior on an abbreviated green-white-checkered finish. Logano was first and Earnhardt Jr. second as the field's only attempt at a GWC conclusion went green. A wreck just past the start/finish line brought out the caution, ending the race just as Logano and Earnhardt Jr. were racing for the lead. Logano was in the lead at the time and declared the winner. Eventually, NASCAR tweaked its green-white-checkered rule in the offseason, leading to the addition of the overtime line. YOU SHOULD KNOW • With Dale Jr. sidelined for the rest of the season, Brad Keselowski may hold the mantle as the best restrictor-plate racer in NASCAR. The driver of the No. 2 Ford has three top-five finishes in the past four Talladega races, including two wins -- to bring his total 'Dega wins to four. He also won at Daytona in July. And following a wreck at Kansas last week, Keselowski likely has to win to advance in the postseason. • It's not just Keselowski who is in win-or-else mode. Chase Elliott essentially is facing a "must-win" scenario to advance into the next round. The rookie is 25 points behind the cutoff line. • Keep an eye on Joey Logano and Austin Dillon . They are tied for the final transfer spot, with Logano currently owning the tiebreaker thanks to his third-place finish at Kansas. Their stories are quite different. Logano won all three Round of 12 races last year, but his performances and speed slipped this year; Dillon is in his first postseason and one race away from making the Round of 8 after being seeded 15th out of 16 drivers at the start of the Chase. • This is the first elimination race in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chase, with two drivers getting knocked out of the postseason. Daniel Hemric and John Hunter Nemechek are both 15 points below the cutoff line and will need to make up some serious ground.
