However, on Tuesday that win was taken away. The track announced the engine did meet the rule requirements for the crate engine class.

“After having a certified crate engine builder go through the engine on the #01 it was found to have non conforming parts and has been declared illegal.”

“We still cannot declare a winner of the Crate Feature as we still have tire test to come back. Only the teams involved will be told of the findings. If they choose to make it public on their pages that’s up to them.”

“With that said there will be no bad mouthing on here about the decision from either side. If it happens you will be banned from posting on this page.”
