By Toby Christie, NASCAR Editor Martin Truex Jr. and Cole Pearn have started the season off with a second place finish in the Daytona 500, but many were wondering how severe penalties would be for the No. 78 Furniture Row Racing team, after they failed pre-qualifying inspection, and were unable to make it back to the grid in time to take a qualifying lap because of a roof flap issue.
