FINISH REVISED FOR TOYOTA ALL-STAR SHOWDOWN GRAND NATIONAL RACE
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Nov. 15, 2005) -- NASCAR announced today that the unofficial results of Saturday's Toyota All-Star Showdown Grand National Division race at Irwindale (Calif.) Speedway have been revised, resulting in original runner-up David Gilliland being declared the winner.
The car driven by Mike Olsen, originally listed as the winner in the unofficial results, failed post-race inspection. Olsen's crew chief, Harry Norcross, was determined to be in violation of Section 12-4-A (actions detrimental to stock car racing) and Section 12-4-Q (car, car parts, components, and/or equipment that do not conform to NASCAR rules) of the NASCAR rule book. Olsen's car had unapproved right-side wheels which exceeded the maximum width of 9 ½ inches and were less than the 27-pound minimum weight.
The violations dropped Olsen to 31st in the official race finish. Gilliland and all others in the event moved up one position as a result.
