INDIANAPOLIS – The United States Auto Club today announced penalties assessed to three Silver Crown teams for violations during Sunday’s Ted Horn 100 at the DuQuoin (Ill.) State Fairgrounds.
The No. 66 Hardy Boys entry driven by race winner Shane Cockrum was fined $300 and nine car entrant points, while the No. 77 Chris Urish entry and the No. 98 Fred Gormly entry driven by Jerry Coons Jr. were each fined $100 and three car entrant points.
