Kyle Larson to serve pass-through penalty at start of Talladega Cup race

TALLADEGA, Ala. — Kyle Larson will have to start from the rear of the field and serve a pass-through penalty at the start of Sunday’s Cup race at Talladega, NASCAR announced.

The penalties are due to an issue found ahead of Saturday’s qualifying session. NASCAR announced that the No. 5 team had made unapproved adjustments to the roof rail section of the No. 5 Chevrolet Camaro while pushing the car to the grid for qualifying.
