FULTON, NY – JUNE 2, 2014 - During post-event tech inspection of the SUNY Canton Sportsman Feature on Saturday, May 24th, Nick Webb’s car was deemed to have a non-compliant harmonic balancer. Due to this infraction, Webb was penalized all points, position and money earned for the event.
On Tuesday, May 27, GM Performance representatives confirmed that engines assembled and sold in late 2013 to the present are sold with the balancer in question as an OEM item. This is the result of a supply issue with the former style. The harmonic balancer on Webb’s car maintains the same part number as the original harmonic balancer and comes standard with late 2013 and 2014 602 crate engines.
As a result of these findings, Webb’s 4th place finish, points and earnings have been re-instated and the field adjusted accordingly.
