Austin Dillon will start from the rear of tonight’s Cup regular-season finale at Daytona (7:30 p.m. ET on NBC) after his No. 3 Chevrolet failed pre-race inspection twice.

Dillon would have started 12th.

The Richard Childress Racing driver is locked into the playoffs thanks to his win at Texas Motor Speedway on July 19.
