STUART, Iowa – Jesse Stovall was gifted a victory in Wednesday’s Lucas Oil MLRA event at Stuart Speedway after initial winner Ryan Gustin was disqualified post-race.
Gustin originally took the lead from Stovall on the 30th lap of the 40-lap feature and led the remainder of the race to claim the apparent victory.
However, during post-race inspection it was discovered that Gustin’s car had an illegal rear suspension component installed. As a result, MLRA officials disqualified Gustin and awarded the victory in Wednesday’s feature to Stovall.
Garrett Alberson was scored second after Gustin’s disqualification. Frank Heckenast Jr., Chris Simpson and Jake Timm followed.
