After a thrilling finish in Sunday’s YellaWood 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, NASCAR disqualified the second-place car driven by Kevin Harvick, saying it failed post-race inspection.

NASCAR ruled the Stewart-Haas Racing Ford violated the sections of the rulebook governing the windshield and overall assembled vehicle rules. The windshield fasteners on Harvick’s Ford weren’t secure. The disqualification relegated Harvick to last in the 38-car field.

Harvick’s disqualification came about two hours after his narrow loss to Ryan Blaney.

All of the other cars passed post-race inspection. However, NASCAR is taking four cars to its Research and Development Center in Concord, N.C., to check engines from all of the Cup Series engine builders. Those going to the R&D Center’s engine dynamometer are the No. 24 (Hendrick Engines); the No. 11 (TRD); the No. 31 (ECR); and the No. 41 (Roush Yates Engines).
