DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Sept. 26, 2008) -- NASCAR announced today the car No. 1 team that competes in the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour has been penalized as a result of rules violations committed Saturday, Sept. 20 at Martinsville Speedway in Martinsville, Va.

Splices, bare and punctured wires will not be permitted in the ignition system: spliced wires from the purple wire out of the ignition amplifier box) of the 2008 NASCAR Touring rule book. The violations were discovered during post-race inspection on Sept. 20.

Burt Myers, driver of car No. 1, has been disqualified from the Sept. 20 Martinsville race, suspended from the next NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour race, suspended from NASCAR until Oct. 1, and placed on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31.
