UPDATE 5:59 PM ET: Matt Tifft has been cleared to qualify in his No. 36 Ford Mustang, however, if he is unable to race on Saturday or has to come out of the car during the race due to his vertigo, Jeb Burton will be on standby.

Burton has been fitted for a seat and is ready to go to help Tifft if need be.

Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Rookie Matt Tifft is having a rough Friday at Bristol Motor Speedway.

He was sidelined before final practice for Saturday night’s Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race as he was suffering from symptoms related to vertigo.

He has gone to the infield care center for evaluation and will be re-evaluated later in the afternoon to see if he is able to qualify his No. 36 Ford Mustang.

If Tifft is unable to go, Chase Briscoe who drove the car in final practice earlier today seems to be the guy tabbed to fill in.
