FORT WORTH, Texas - Ryan Newman will start at the rear after his car failed inspection twice before Sunday’s race at Texas Motor Speedway.

He was to have started 18th.

NASCAR also ejected the team’s car chief, and Newman will be docked 15 minutes in the first practice next weekend at Bristol.

The only other car that will start at the rear is that of Alex Bowman. He went to a backup car after hitting the wall Friday.
