SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- Jorge Diaz, Jr., who timed third for today's Puerto Rico Grand Prix Motorock Trans-Am Tour for the BFGoodrich Tires Cup race, lost his qualifying time due to a rules infraction discovered in post-qualifying technical inspection. Diaz's No. 8 Don Q Rum Jaguar XKR was found in violation of Rule 2.20.1 "Vehicle Weight Limits and Adjustments" in the Trans-Am General Regulations and Technical Specifications.

Diaz will start 23rd on the grid today, while each driver in the field will move up one position. Diaz also loses the one bonus point he earned for qualifying in the top three.
