A mechanical failure, potentially transmission related, happened, which brought the car to a halt.

Wallace ranked 36th in qualifying, as he was unable to turn a full timed lap. But now for 23XI Racing, the focus shifts to diagnosing and correcting the problem before the race at 2:30 PM ET.
Will they get the car repaired in time to take the green flag?
