NASCAR Penalizes Drivers Brad Keselowski And Tony Stewart

NASCAR has assessed behavioral penalties to drivers Brad Keselowski and Tony Stewart for their involvement in post-race incidents on Oct. 11 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

 

Keselowski has been fined $50,000 and placed on NASCAR probation for the next four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship events through Nov. 12 for violating:

 

  • Section 12-1: Actions detrimental to stock car racing
  • Section 12-4.9: Behavioral penalty – involved in post-race incidents

 

Stewart has been fined $25,000 and placed on NASCAR probation for the next four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship events through Nov. 12 for violating:

 

  • Section 12-1: Actions detrimental to stock car racing
  • Section 12-4.9: Behavioral penalty – involved in a post-race incident

 

“These penalties are about maintaining a safe environment following the race,” said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR senior vice president, competition and racing development. “We knew that the new Chase format was likely going to raise the intensity level and we want our drivers to continue to be themselves. However, the safety of our drivers, crew members, officials, and workers is paramount and we will react when that safety could be compromised.”
