Tax fraud brings 18 month sentence for McClure

Longtime motorsports leader Larry McClure is off to federal prison for dodging taxes.

U.S. Western District Judge James P. Jones sentenced McClure to 18 months for filing a false income tax return, obstructing the federal investigation and lying to Internal Revenue Service investigators, reports the Bristol Herald Courier. In addition, he will have to pay $125,000 in fines and restitution.

The popular stock car racer apologized before those in the Abingdon courtroom, including the 50 or so fans who had come to show support.
