NASCAR upholds $50,000 fine on Tony Furr

July 25, 1997

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) _ A three-member NASCAR panel has denied an appeal by Tony Furr, crew chief for Pepsi 400 winner John Andretti, and upheld the $50,000 fine levied against him when inspectors found an illegal carburetor mounting before that race.

The appeal was heard Thursday in Charlotte, N.C.

During a routine pre-race inspection at Daytona International Speedway, inspectors found carburetor mounting studs designed to move. NASCAR rules require that carburetor mountings remain fixed.

New mounting studs were installed and Andretti went on to win his first Winston Cup race.
