For the second straight year the Taco Bell 300, Late Model Stock racing's richest race, has been shamed by a cheating race team.

SUPER=03-Martinsville/October 1995;


Last year Elliott Sadler was stripped of his trophy and first place check when NASCAR inspectors discovered during a post race inspection that the team had illegally angled the cylinder heads in the engine.
SUPER=04-Yesterday;


Yesterday the crime was the same, but the culprit was North Carolina's Jay Fogleman. NASCAR stripped him of his $30 thousand dollars in winnings and awarded the money to second place finisher B.A. Wilson.
Wilson started the final 100 laps of the race in the lead but had slipped back to fourth on the final lap.
That was before race leader David Hyder was spun out in turn one by David Blankenship.
Wilson and Fogleman avoided the mess and made it across the line ahead of Blankenship.
Now just think if it hadn't been for that spin, Hyder would have won the race and all of this controversy probably would have been avoided.
Don't bet on it!!
