Kurt Busch's car was the last to the starting grid before Sunday's Sylvania 300 after the car failed pre-race inspection.
The car's rear-end housing didn't fit the templates, so the team was forced to make an adjustment to be allowed onto the starting grid. (You may notice that many Cup cars are "yawed" out and the right rear hangs out slightly as they go down the straightaway.)
Busch's car made it to the grid just 10 minutes before the start of the race — preventing us from seeing our first ever NASCAR rally start — but just served to start Busch's foxing temper earlier as he uttered a naughty word on camera during ESPN's pre-race broadcast.
Busch complained about his car from the drop of the green flag, was never a factor and wound up finishing 22nd. The result dropped him to ninth in the standings, 28 points back of points leader Tony Stewart.
