Two drivers will drop to the rear of Sunday’s Brickyard 400 after multiple trips through NASCAR’s inspection lines.

After his No. 19 Toyota failed inspection four times, Daniel Suarez also will lose 10 points, and car chief Todd Brewer was ejected. Suarez had been scheduled to start 20th after the field was set by points.

Martin Truex Jr.'s No. 78 Toyota failed inspection three times, which resulted in the ejection of car chief Blake Harris. Truex, whose Furniture Row Racing team announced Tuesday that this is its final season, was scheduled to start third.

The Brickyard 400 will start Sunday at 1 p.m. on NBCSN, an hour earlier than originally scheduled after rain washed out practice and qualifying Saturday.
