Kevin Tomlinson has been awarded last-place feature points following Sunday night’s post-feature disqualification for not having a muffler. The disqualification cost Tomlinson the stock car championship.
Tomlinson had filed a protest with the IMCA following the DQ, but the ruling was upheld. There had been a question whether Tomlinson would then receive last-place feature points or zero points. The IMCA ruled he should receive last-place points.
If Tomlinson had received zero points, he would have finished third, instead of second.
Here’s how the final top 10 stock car leaders look:
1. Abe Huls, 610 points CHAMPION
