CONCORD, N.C. – Brandon Sheppard, Greg Satterlee, Scott Bloomquist and Jimmy Owens have appealed their disqualifications and suspensions following a failed post-race inspection at the Dirt Late Model Dream at Eldora Speedway. An appeal is expected from Ricky Thornton Jr. but has not yet been received.
In accordance with rule 12.1-K, competitors who file an appeal will have penalties temporarily deferred. Both will be allowed to compete at DIRTcar sanctioned events until their appeals are heard on Monday, June 27.
Sheppard, Satterlee, Bloomquist, Owens and Thornton were disqualified and suspended after tire samples collected during the Dream and tested by an independent laboratory did not meet established benchmarks in a chemical analysis.
All licensed DIRTcar Members in good standing are able to request an appeal and have a total of seven days from the issuance of a penalty to request the appeal.
