#60 MSR Riley Ford Fail Post Race Tech Exam

Third Place Daytona Finishers Penalised

Grand-Am Road Racing has penalised the #60 Riley Ford after post race tech examinations found that the car featured “mechanical adjustments resulting in performance levels outside the documented maximums.”

Michael Shank Racing will forfeit their $35,000 third-place prize money and their 30 team championship points;

The team’s drivers Ozz Negri, John Pew, Justin Wilson, Marcos Ambrose and AJ Allmendinger have each been penalized 30 driver championship points;

Ford has been penalized 30 manufacturer championship points;

The team has been penalized one point in the North American Endurance Championship standings;

The team has been fined $15,000, payable to Camp Boggy Creek, the official charity of Grand-Am.

“We are as surprised about this as anyone,” said team owner Mike Shank. “This was an incredible team effort--not just from John, Justin, Ozz, Marcos, and AJ, but from the entire crew as well as our partners at Roush Yates. We are very proud to work with Ford Racing, and we know that the guys will figure out what when wrong and make sure we are not in this position again. After having fought back from so far down to make it to the podium, it is hard to put into words how disappointing this is.”
