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.
