The Engine Heads Story!

  • Here is what the NSSN printed about the possible 'Illegal Engine' reported earlier this week in the #47 Jayski Ford driven by Billy Standridge at Talladega:
    "NASCAR officials seized the cylinder heads off the #47 Jayski's Ford driven by Billy Standridge following post race inspections. X-rays of the heads were enough to convince NASCAR officials to transport the the heads back to North Carolina for further testing. The engine Standridge ran with in the DieHard 500 was obtained from the #98 team owned by Cale Yarborough. Pentalties are pending."(NSSN) Actually the engine was borrowed(10-17-1997)

  • Here is the outcome:
    "The reason NASCAR took the heads back to Charlotte was to have a better look at them. It had gotten so late at Talladega(8:30-9:00P.M.)that there was not enough light to look at the heads. The reason it was so late was because the 98 team had to take their engine apart first before taking the borrowed engine apart that Billy used. NASCAR was ready to go back to Charlotte and that is why the heads where not checked until Tuesday. Billy has received the heads back and was told there would be no penalties and has also received money for second round fastest qualifier and race earnings."(10-19-1997)
