Penalty Against LaJoie Upheld By NASCAR

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The National Stock Car Racing Appeals Panel today heard and considered the appeal of the No. 07 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East team.

The penalty concerns Sections 12-1 (Actions detrimental to stock car racing); 12-4-I (Race equipment used in the event does not conform to NASCAR rules); and Section 20C-5.10.1A: (Carburetor Eligibility: The Holley 4150HP Series, list number 80509, four (4) barrel carburetor is the only carburetor approved for the NASCAR-approved “Spec Engine”. The carburetor must remain as supplied by the NASCAR-approved supplier (refer to sub-section 20C-4.1B)); Section 20C-4.1B: (No modifications to the carburetor and carburetor spacer – Must remain as supplied by the NASCAR-approved supplier: Unapproved modification to the carburetor metering block). The violation was discovered during post-race inspection on Oct. 27.

The penalties stemmed from a post-race inspection at Greenville (S.C.) Pickens Speedway following the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East event on Oct. 27.

The original penalties assessed were:

- Car owner (Randy LaJoie): Loss of 25 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East championship car owner points;

- Car driver (Corey LaJoie): Loss of 25 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East championship driver points;

- Crew chief (Ron Otto): $5,000 fine; suspended from NASCAR until fine is paid; placed on NASCAR probation for the next NASCAR K&N Pro Series East event;

The Appellant appealed all of the above penalties assessed to the No. 07 team.

Upon hearing the testimony and carefully reviewing the facts, it was a unanimous decision by the National Stock Car Racing Appeals Panel to uphold the original penalties assessed by NASCAR. Therefore, the loss of 25 championship car owner points for Randy LaJoie; the loss of 25 championship driver points for Corey LaJoie; and the $5,000 fine and probation for crew chief Ron Otto will be effective immediately.
