The Hendrick Motorsports No. 24 Chevrolet for driver William Byron failed NASCAR Cup Series pre-qualifying inspection twice Friday at Talladega Superspeedway.

As a result of the infraction, No. 24 car chief Tyler Jones was ejected for the rest of the race weekend leading up to Sunday‘s YellaWood 500. The team will also lose its pit-stall selection for Sunday‘s race, the fifth of 10 events in the Cup Series postseason.

The No. 24 Chevy was the only car in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs to fail inspection twice, and the car passed on its third trip through the line.

UPDATE:  The cars of #16-Hemric and #31-Haley also failed twice.  They will also lose a crew member and pit selection.
