- A short track somewhere
Nascar has a rule that you can't get out of your car and assault other drivers. That is probably Section 4.3A. This rule was put in place because drivers like Tony were throwing helmets, safety equipment etc at drivers rolling by under caution. Now they just shoot them the bird. They don't get out of the car under caution and run over and assault another driver.
NASCAR chief operating officer Steve O’Donnell told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio that the penalty is specific to “what took place on the race track. When we look at how that incident occurred, in our minds it was really a dangerous act. We thought that was intentional and put other competitors at risk. As we look at the sport and where we are, we thought that definitely crossed the line.”
