NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour

NASCAR announced today that the unofficial results of Friday's NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race at Stafford (Conn.) Speedway have been revised due to rules violations discovered during post-race inspection of the fifth-place car - the No. 19 driven by Jimmy Blewett.

The No. 19 car was found to be in violation of Sections 12-4-A (actions detrimental to stock car racing); and 20D-5.10.1B(2) (Altered carburetor booster passages) of the 2008 NASCAR rule book. The violations were discovered during post race inspection on May 23.

The violations dropped Blewett to 31st in the official race finish. All other drivers in the event moved up one position in the official finishing order.
