New Smyrna Speedway officials have announced that Tank Tucker’s Florida Modifieds victory on night No. 7 of the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing has been disqualified following testing of a tire sample.
Track officials sent a tire sample to a laboratory for testing. According to a Facebook post on the track’s official Facebook page, the results came back late last week and “did not conform with the benchmark sample.”
