Michael Shank Racing was stripped off their third place finish for the No.60 Ford Riley after the sanctioning body discovered mechanical adjustments to the car’s engine, which resulted in “performance levels outside the documented maximums.”
The team was stripped of their podium finish along with their $35,000 in prize money and 30 championship points by Grand Am Racing.
Shank says the team is ”as surprised about this as anyone. We know that the guys will figure out what when wrong and make sure we are not in this position again.”
The No. 60 team was made up of A. J. Allmendinger, Marcos Ambrose, Oswaldo Negri, John Pew and Justin Wilson.
