Pendleton, Ind. (April 29, 2003) -- American Speed Association officials announced this morning that the engine from race winner Mike Garvey's WJ Plemons Investments Chevrolet passed inspection at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. The engine was taken following Garvey's victory in Saturday's ASA Racing Georgia 250 Presented by Jani-King at Georgia's Lanier National Speedway.

"Mike Garvey's engine went to Lingenfelter Performance and everything in it was found to be OK," said ASA Technical Director Kin Shaver. "Mike was told this morning that everything had checked out, and he was happy with it. He's happy, we're happy."

Shaver said the engine seals put in place at the time the engine went into service were intact. "They [Lingenfelter] checked to see that the seals had not been tampered with and that everything was in its proper perspective. They also checked each of the components to see that nothing had been done to them."

The engine check process is used by ASA officials to keep the playing field level in the series. In past seasons, engines from race-winning cars driven by Johnny Sauter and Joey Clanton have been inspected in the same manner and were found to be intact.
