CONCORD, N.C. – Jeffery Lefcourt was named the Masters Division winner of round seven at the Bojangles’ Summer Shootout Tuesday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway, after officials deemed a timing and scoring mishap erroneously credited Scott Whitaker with the win.
Officials from Charlotte Motor Speedway and U.S. Legend Cars International reviewed the race Wednesday to correct the error. The following race results are official.
For Lefcourt, the win is his first in Summer Shootout competition.
Whitaker changed a tire on lap 16, and appeared to have won the event after officials called the event complete via the time limit with five laps remaining on Tuesday night, but was demoted to 11th upon the final review.
