Dillon to rear at Darlington after pre-race inspection issues

The No. 3 of Austin Dillon will drop to the rear of Sunday’s Cook Out Southern 500 at Darlington.

Dillon, who failed to make the NASCAR Cup Series playoffs, was scheduled to begin the 500 mile race in the 21st position but multiple failures of pre-race inspection will see him give up that spot.

There were no other issues in pre-race inspection and all 16 playoff drivers will start in the top 16 at the beginning of the race.

The Southern 500 is scheduled for 367 laps around the 1.366 mile track. Fans can watch the catch the race on NBCSN, the NBC Sports App, MRN, and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
