Other Issues:

Pro-Lite: After the checkered flag the #51 made post-race contact with the #12 after leaving the track. This is not permitted for any reason. The #51 driver is placed on indefinite probation for the contact and will not be permitted to practice for the next round of racing.

Pro-Lite: After the finish of the race team members from the #94 team went to the pit of the #51. An altercation occurred between crew members after harsh words were exchanged. A crew member from the #94 team laid hands on a team member from the #51 team. Since the #94 team is deemed the aggressor for going to the other teams pit the driver of the #94 is placed on indefinite probation and will be fined $2,500 for the actions. The driver of the #94 will also not be permitted to practice or qualify at the next round of racing.

After the races on Saturday the engines from 3 pro lite trucks were taken for tear down inspection. #37, #77, #6 were all taken and on Sunday morning were torn apart and full inspection was performed on all 3. All 3 engines passed inspections and found to be legal with no issues.

Notes:
Reminder, all Pro class drivers given or shown a black flag will serve a stop and go penalty for rough driving. Any driver who earns 2 black flags in any race will not be permitted to continue. If a Pro driver, already on Probation is given or shown the black flag that driver will serve a (1) one-lap penalty at minimum. All spotter conduct must be sportsmanlike. Once a truck is presented in Tech and or staging to engage in competition, if the spotter is deemed to be displaying unsportsmanlike conduct, the driver will be removed from competition immediately. Professionalism is the only accepted behavior that will be tolerated in the spotters stand, on track or in the pit area.
