Five drivers forced to start at rear at Michigan

Jimmie Johnson's win in Dover was the 83rdCup Series win of his career, third this season, so what makes him so good? The NASCAR America analysts praise his work ethic and how he handles himself on the track.

Daniel Suarez is the latest driver who will have to start at the rear for today’s NASCAR Cup race at Michigan International Speedway after an unapproved tire change, NASCAR announced.

Suarez joins Landon Cassill, AJ Allmendinger and Jimmie Johnson, who will each go to the rear for using a backup car. Cassill, Allmendinger and Johnson each went to a backup car after separate incidents during practice this weekend.

Also, Ty Dillon will start at the rear after his qualifying time was disallowed because of an unapproved body modification.
