Matt Tifft Fails Post-Qualifying Inspection, Will Forfeit 22nd Starting Spot

There has been an anxious waiting game going on since Saturday’s qualifying session for Sunday’s Camping World 400 at Chicagoland Speedway.

The starting grid would not be made official until Sunday morning tech inspection could be completed. The last time this procedure was in place, at Kansas Speedway 11 cars forfeited their starting spot when they failed post-qualifying inspection.

Sunday morning at Chicago, was a totally different story. All but one car passed inspection.

Only Matt Tifft, who drives the No. 36 Ford Mustang for Front Row Motorsports will have his qualifying time disallowed. Tifft was slated to start 22nd.

Austin Dillon is the official pole winner of the Camping World 400.
