DIRTcar Northeast officials issued penalties on Thursday to Billy Pauch and Tyler Siri after both were found to be in violation of DIRTcar rules during DIRTcar Nationals in February.
Both drivers were penalized for being in violation of rule 11.1J which prohibits chemically altering tires. The drivers were also fined under rule 11.1A which allows fines to be collected from prize money on the day of the infraction and requires all fines to be paid before a competitor is allowed to compete again.
Siri and Pauch have been suspended from all DIRTcar-sanctioned events until May 28, 2016. Siri was fined $2,000 plus the amount of his purse and the $150 lab fee for a total of $2,350. Pauch was fined $2,000 plus the amount of his purse and the $150 lab fee for a total of $3,050.
Both drivers will be on probation until Dec. 31, 2016.
