Top Alcohol Dragster racer Randy Meyer has been fined $10,000 by the National Hot Rod Association.
Meyer, of Spring Hill, Kansas, was found in violation of NHRA rules during last weekend’s Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals at Norwalk, Ohio.
According to NHRARacer.com, Meyer’s dragster was found in technical inspection to have an improper shutoff device.
More specifically, tech inspectors found the shutoff device had been disconnected – it’s unknown if it was intentional or accidental – thus rendering it inoperable and in violation of Section 13, page 10 of the 2014 NHRA Rulebook under Shutoff Device.
Meyer also lost all points acquired in the Norwalk event, being ruled as disqualified for the violation post-race.
Meyer can appeal the fine, but it’s unclear yet whether he will do so.
