NASCAR announced that the No. 2 and the No. 22 "had some problems" in pre-race inspection.

The parts were confiscated, but Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano will not have to go to the rear of the field. Sources at the track say the teams had to replace the rear-end housings.

Keselowski rolls off 16th with Logano lined up right behind him in 18th.

NASCAR normally announces results of such investigations on Tuesday, including any fines or penalties. It's not known whether the sanctioning body will change their timing because of 2012 Sprint Cup Champion Keselowski's scheduled visit to the White House.

Skirts and Scuffs will keep you posted with updates as they are available.
