Gragson’s No. 9 Fails Inspection, Loses Dash 4 Cash Bonus

DARLINGTON, S.C. – Noah Gragson’s No. 9 Chevrolet has been disqualified following Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series event at Darlington Raceway.

Gragson originally finished fourth to earn the $100,000 Dash 4 Cash bonus.

NASCAR officials disqualified Gragson’s No. 9 under Rule 20.14.c:

All suspension mounts and mounting hardware must not allow movement or realignment of any suspension and/or drivetrain component beyond normal rotation or suspension and/or drivetrain travel.

As a result of Gragson’s disqualification, Kaulig Racing driver A.J. Allmendinger has been awarded the $100,000 Dash 4 Cash bonus at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway. Allmendinger was credited with a 12th-place finish Saturday following Gragson’s disqualification.

Allmendinger will also replace Gragson in the Dash 4 Cash field next weekend at Dover (Del.) Int’l Speedway. He’ll be joined by Saturday’s Darlington winner Justin Allgaier, Josh Berry and Brandon Jones.
