From the national office of West Coast Pro-Trucks

After the June 28, 2003 race at Irwindale Speedway, camshafts where impounded from the top 5 finishers.

After inspection the following competitors where disqualified for using illegal camshafts.

Truck #00 Michael Thomas, Truck #88 Michael Pennington and Truck #33 Dean Kuhn.

Being that the camshafts used in the West Coast Pro-Truck series are spec parts, the following fines/penalties have been assessed.

For all three Competitors involved; Loss of all points year to date,

Restitution of all prize monies year to date, a fine equal to their prize monies and probation for the remainder of the season.

West Coast Pro-trucks is an entry-level truck racing series; our intensions are to keep the cost of racing to a minimum. To give the race fans the opportunity to come out of the grand stands and to get behind the steering wheel of a race vehicle for the least amount of money. Therefore drastic measures must be taken to keep an even playing field.

-John Hulsebosch; promoter/owner
