“We are extremely disappointed in the actions of a few of our competitors at Tri-County Speedway,” said CARS Tour Executive Director Kip Childress. “The safety of all of our competitors, staff members and fans is of our utmost concern. We will not tolerate any retaliation on the track or fighting during our events.
“While we feel the penalties assessed today are both fair and consistent, we want to stress that penalties for these acts moving forward will continue to be more severe to ensure that everyone is fully aware of our stance on these issues.”
The season finale for the Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour will take place on Nov. 4 at Caraway Speedway in Sophia, N.C. and will determine the outcomes of tight championship battles in both the Late Model Stock Car and Pro Late Model divisions.
