LAS VEGAS-- Las Vegas Motor Speedway officials announced Monday that Chuck Trickle's race car met all specifications following the NASCAR Late Model twin mains Saturday night at the Bullring.

Trickle won the first of the 30-lap races as part of the Orleans NASCAR Weekly Racing Series Presented by Dodge. Trickle finished sixth in the second 30-lap event. Following Trickle's win, a fellow NASCAR competitor protested the legality of the camshaft on Trickle's car.

Following a lengthy technical inspection, Chief Technical Inspector Mike Stafford and other NASCAR officials found the crankshaft in compliance with the 2002 rulebook.

"One of our NASCAR competitors filed a legal protest," said David Stetzer, LVMS director of short-track operations. "After a thorough inspection, we are confident that the No. 70 car met all regulations set forth in our rulebook."
