Following the completion of the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers ARCA Fall Classic 200, things were looking great for Cunningham Motorsports.

Dakoda Armstrong won his second career race while teammate Tom Hessert finished third, claiming the points lead, 10 points over Patrick Sheltra.

However in post-race inspection as according to ARCA officials, both cars failed inspection due to not meeting the required roof height.

Historically, the penalties equaled a fine of $10,000, along with the loss of 25 driver and owner’s points.

If Hessert’s penalty follows suit, he will drop to second in points, 15 points behind Sheltra headed into the final two events.

The penalty, however, would not take the win away from Dakoda Armstrong so he’d keep the distinction of being one of three drivers to win multiple races this year.

Penalties are expected to be formally announced later on today (Tuesday).

Also, third-place in points Craig Goess was treated and released from an Indiana Hospital early Sunday morning. Goess sited back pain following the event and was transferred to hospital to be looked at. Goess currently sits third in points, 30 points behind Hessert as of right now, before any penalties.
