#55 manifold confiscated UPDATE: during pre-qualifying inspection, the intake manifold of the #55 NAPA Toyota of Michael Waltrip was confiscated by NASCAR, it didn't meet speiciations and the team had to install another one.(SPEED's NASCAR Live)(2-11-2007)
UPDATE: NASCAR officials confiscated the intake manifold off of the #55 Toyota Camry of driver/team owner Michael Waltrip during the Daytona 500 pre-qualifying inspection Sunday. Robin Pemberton, NASCAR's director of competition, said they will send the manifold to the NASCAR Research and Development Center in Concord, NC, on Sunday. "We'll do some tests on it [Monday]," Pemberton said. "Our inspector caught a substance inside that we didn't really know what it was." Pemberton would not give any specifics about the substance. Waltrip's team was allowed to place another manifold on the car and participate in qualifying. Pemberton was asked if the #55 team should expect a penalty because of the manifold problem. "We're not going to discuss penalties," Pemberton said. "We will evaluate the situation and have answers by the end of the week. But we won't speculate on it." Pemberton said the #55 manifold problem was not specific to any individual manufacturer
