During post-qualifying inspection, NASCAR found the auto to have an unapproved rear deck fin lid.

It got even worse when Larson's pole-winning qualifying time was disallowed - all of which gave Martin Truex Jr., who assumed the lead and a leg-up in the battle for the regular-season title, a lot to smile about.

In the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, the Nos. Larson has the honors of starting first, posting a lap in the final round of qualifying that Truex couldn't top.

Warner: Senate intel seeks more records from Kushner, Trump Jr
Neither Warner nor Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Burr have confirmed that they have or will ask Trump Jr .to testify. Grassley declined to comment on whether he thought there was anything criminal in Trump Jr .'s meeting with Veselnitskaya.

Larson already was competing this weekend with interim crew chief Tony Lunders, as Chad Johnston starts a three-race suspension for an improper rear brake cooling assembly found after the Kentucky race.

Larson was penalized 35 points and Truex took over the points lead. Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth are set to start on Row 2 after finishing third and fourth in qualifying on the Magic Mile, respectively.

Denny Hamlin qualified ninth in his backup vehicle after crashing in practice. Sunday's 301-lap event will mark his first start after missing seven races with a broken back, suffered in a May 13 crash at Kansas Speedway.
