On Tuesday, February 16, Speed51.com reported that the No. 21 Super Late Model team was disqualified from competition during the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna Speedway (FL).


Officials found a soaked set of tires on the machine and that is a direct violation of the rules.  Lead Tech Director Ricky Brooks also told Speed51.com that the team left professionally and amicably.


It was also reported that Matt Wallace was the driver of record during that practice session and that was incorrect.  Matt Wallace, at one time, climbed behind the wheel of the No. 21 Super Late Model.  There was, however, a driver change during the afternoon practice.  Former Snowball Derby winner Clay Rogers had put the car to the top of the speed charts at one point in the day and was the driver of record at the time of the disqualification.


The incorrect information was also reported live on Wednesday night’s FansChoice.TV broadcast during the Pro Late Model 35-lap event.


Speed51.com would like to extend our apologies to Matt Wallace, who has been competing during Florida Speedweeks at New Smyrna Speedway in the Pro Late Model division.
