Following last Sunday's (8/11) 50-lap Street Stock special at Barre's Thunder Road, engines were torn down and checked. Thunder Road officials have announced the engines of #38 five-time winner Greg Adams, Jr. and the #16 Dean Switser, Jr. were both found illegal. Adams engine was illegal due to piston and camshaft issues, while the engine of Switser was illegal with camshaft issues. The #92 Garry Bashaw was also found illegal in post race inspection for an illegal carburetor and refusal to allow his motor to be torn down.
Adams, Switser and Bashaw have all been disqualified from Sunday's Street Stock event. The motor infractions have resulted in a complete loss of points for the 2013 season and all three competitors found illegal have been suspended from racing at Thunder Road or any ACT-sanctioned event for the remainder of the 2013 season.
The engine of #50 Tommy "Thunder" Smith was found legal in post race inspection. He has inherited the win for Sunday's Street Stock Special.
