Pole-sitter Denny Hamlin is among the four drivers who will start from the rear for today’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway (3:48 p.m. ET green flag on Fox).
Hamlin’s No. 11 Toyota was a late add to the list due to unapproved adjustments. Hamlin is the defending winner at Homestead.
Bowman would have started 13th, LaJoie would have started 25th and Davison was set to start 29th.
LaJoie will have NBC Sports analyst and Spire Motorsports consultant Steve Letarte as crew chief on his No. 7 Chevrolet today. Regular crew chief Ryan Sparks is missing the race due to COVID-19 protocols.
