Driver dropped to last place with shock violation
WEST HAVEN, Vt. – Devil’s Bowl Speedway officials on Tuesday have announced a penalty in the Central Vermont Motorcycles Late Model division of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series.
The No. 3RB car, driven by Robert Bryant Jr., has been placed last in the finish order for the second of two feature races run on Sugar & Spice “Double Stack” Night on Saturday, August 27 on the half-mile Asphalt Track at Devil’s Bowl. Bryant’s car was found in post-race technical inspection to be using a shock absorber with less than the minimum 3-1/2″ travel required by the American-Canadian Tour rulebook, which is utilized by Devil’s Bowl Speedway.
Bryant has been dropped from his original second-place finish and is now the last driver in the finish order; he will collect seventh-place points and purse money.
With the penalty, the revised finishing order sees Josh Masterson moved up to second place, followed by Seth Bridge. Steve Miller was the race winner.
Devil’s Bowl Speedway’s Asphalt Track is back in action on Saturday, September 3 at 7:00 p.m. as The Rutland Herald presents four divisions of racing, a special Labor Day Weekend fireworks show, and driver autographs at intermission.
