Bloomquist Receives Penalties For Using Illegally-Altered Tire During World of Outlaws World Finals

 

CONCORD, NC - Nov. 24, 2009 - Dirt Late Model veteran Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, Tenn., has been fined and suspended from World of Outlaws Late Model Series and DIRTcar Racing-sanctioned events after forensic laboratory tests determined he used an illegally-altered tire during the recent World Finals at The Dirt Track @ Lowe's Motor Speedway.

 

World of Outlaws Late Model Series officials followed post-qualifying inspection procedures at The Dirt Track, inspecting the tires of the top-six qualifiers. Citing “reasonable suspicion” based on odor, officials confiscated the left-rear tire Bloomquist used for the second round of World Finals time trials on Nov. 5 and the tire was sent to an independent laboratory for detailed analysis. Test results showed the tire was treated with a foreign substance that is not allowed under World of Outlaws Late Model rule 15.11-G.

 

As a result of the rule violation, Bloomquist has been assessed the following penalties:

 

* Forfeiture of his winnings from the World Finals events on Nov. 6 and 7, totaling $11,350.

 

* A fine equal to his forfeited winnings of $11,350, which must be paid prior to his return to competition.

 

* A suspension from all World of Outlaws Late Model Series and DIRTcar Racing-sanctioned events for a period of six months, effective from Nov. 5, 2009, through May 5, 2009.

 

* Loss of 1,000 points from Bloomquist's total in the 2009 WoO LMS point standings.

 

As a DIRTcar Racing member in good standing, Bloomquist may appeal the penalties.

 

Pending any appeal and the result, effected positions for both World Finals events (including points and purse) would be adjusted. Fines collected are contributed to the World of Outlaws Driver Benevolent Fund.
