Matter disqualified when car fails post-race inspection

 

Las Vegas Motor Speedway officials have disqualified NASCAR Late Model driver Doug Matter from both of this past Saturday night's races at the Bullring.  

Matter was disqualified after his car failed the post-race technical inspection. Matter's car did not meet the standards of Rule 10-4.8: "The maximum valve size, as measured across the face of the valves, is as follows: Intake - 1.94 in.; Exhaust - 1.50.  Valve must be made of steel or stainless steel.  The valve stem centerlines must remain in the OEM location and dimension for the heads being used."

            Matter was removed from the official results and will receive neither points nor prize money.
