Call to NASCAR hauler at Darlington a head-scratcher

NASCAR made a curious call during the Bojangles’ Southern 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Darlington (S.C.) Sunday evening, and that call was made to Landon Cassill, instructing him to report to the NASCAR hauler after the race. The reason? Cassill reported debris on the race track, according to a report from

Calling Cassill to the NASCAR hauler after the race was curious for two reasons.

For one, drivers often report debris on the race track, especially when a caution would to be to their benefit, like when they’re about to go a lap down, or they need to pit and want to do so under caution after most of the rest of the field has pitted under green. There are other situations, but those are the two that come to mind.

Secondly, there was debris on the race track, because NASCAR threw the yellow soon after Cassill’s report of debris, and said debris was shown on TV during live coverage of the race.

Calling drivers to the NASCAR hauler isn’t all that unusual, but those calls usually come after excessive on-track contact that appears intentional, a fight, something like that. But calling a driver to the hauler for reporting debris that really was there? What’s up with that?

I’m hoping there’s something about this story I’m missing.
