Penalties have been handed down after yesterday’s Phoenix insane race.
Unsurprisingly, Jeff Gordon, who was involved in that huge fight with Clint Bowyer, has been fined $100,000 and docked 25 points. He, along with crew chief Alan Gustafson, is on probation until December 31st.
In the red also is Clint Bowyer’s crew chief, Brian Pattie, who has to pay $25,000 and is on probation until the end of the year like Gordon and Gustafson.
Here’s the kicker: Brad Keselowski has been fined $25,000 for have an electronic device in his car during the race. That’s fancy-shmancy talk for having his cell phone out. This is the one that upsets me. Remember the Daytona 500, when Brad tweeted that picture of the jet dryer from the car? NASCAR, what’s the deal?
Other than that, the penalties seem fit, and I’m slightly shocked NASCAR handed these down quickly.
I guess when NASCAR’s actually the news for a questionable incident, something must be done ASAP.
