LVMS announces penalties for drivers.
Johnson declared winner of Legends race

LAS VEGAS-- LVMS officials have suspended NASCAR Outlaw Stock driver Chris Bray from the Bullring at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for two races and placed him on probation for the remainder of the season.

Legends Car driver Michael Morrissey had his win taken away by INEX officials because his car did not meet the minimum weight requirement outlined in the 2002 INEX rulebook. Justin Johnson was named the winner of the race.

Bray's suspension and probation is a result of rough driving in the NASCAR Outlaw Stocks first main event Saturday. He violated rule 1-1.13 of the 2002 Bullring Rulebook, which states, "Any driver who is observed causing other drivers to spin or lose control of their car during a race or cool-down lap may be warned, fined disqualified and/or suspended indefinitely."

Morrissey was disqualified, but was awarded 13th position as the last car on the lead lap as a result of a weight infraction. He violated rule 73 of the 2002 INEX Rulebook, which states, "The minimum weight of the car with the driver shall be 1300 pounds. Competitors will not be permitted to add fuel after an event to meet minimum weight."
