Ron Beauchamp Jr's #60 team penalized: NCAT Cayuga finishing order revised

It is never a good time to receive rules penalty in auto racing. Past Saturday night's season opener for the 2008 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series resulted with an immediate strike against the #60 Mopar/Mobil 1 team with the Ron Beauchamp Jr. driven Dodge Avenger.

Following the series' running of the Crown Jewel 200 at Cayuga International Speedway, Beauchamp Motorsport's #60 Dodge has now been displaced from a 3rd place finish. A carburetor metering block were ruled after post race inspection as unapproved according to the NASCAR Canada rulebook. Reacting to the rule violations, Beauchamp is now displaced from his original 3rd place finish, dropped to 23rd and last for the Cayuga race. The revised results improves the position of every race car behind Beauchamp by one spot, promoting Mark Dilley to the 3rd place podium. Additional sanctions were also levied against the #60 Dodge's crew chief Brad McIntyre with NASCAR placing him on probation through the rest of the year (December 31, 2008).

Ron Beauchamp Jr. and the #60 Mopar/ Mobil 1 Dodge team has the option to appeal the decision, but his yet to announce pursuing this action.
