Earnhardt, Hamlin fail inspection

Reid Spencer - NASCAR Wire Service Monday, Feb 16 1611

Both Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Denny Hamlin had their qualifying times disallowed for infractions discovered during post-qualifying inspection on Sunday.

The left front of Earnhardt's No. 88 Chevrolet measured too low in ride height. The track bar split on Hamlin's No. 11 Toyota was three-quarters of an inch larger than the allowable 3.0 inches.

Both cars will start from the rear in their respective Budweiser Duel at Daytona qualifying races on Thursday night
