Chase Elliott and Quin Houff to the Rear of Field at Phoenix After Unapproved Adjustments

Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series Instacart 500 at Phoenix Raceway will feature a grand total of six drivers who will drop to the rear of the field before the green flag. Late additions to the list include Chase Elliott, who was set to start from the sixth position and Quin Houff, who was set to roll from 35th.

Elliott and Houff each had unapproved adjustments made to their vehicles after pre-race inspection, which took place Saturday.

The other drivers going to the rear are Kyle Larson (was supposed to start second), William Byron (was supposed to start 10th) and Cody Ware (was supposed to start 31st) who all failed pre-race inspection multiple times on Saturday.
