NASCAR has announced penalties from an incident prior to the end of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race at Martinsville Speedway on Saturday, Oct. 26.
Kevin Harvick and Ty Dillon were battling for position during the 200-lap Kroger 200 near the end of the race when an accident ensued. They continued to beat and bang while attempting to drive off the track. Harvick stopped in Dillon’s pit and a crew member proceeded to hurl a hammer at Harvick’s truck.
As result, NASCAR has penalized Dillon’s No. 3 team for violating 12-1 (Actions detrimental to stock car racing; throwing an object at a competitor’s race truck) and 9-4A (The Crew Chief assumes responsibility for the actions of his/her Driver, Truck Owner and team members).
Crew Chief Paul (Marcus) Richmond has been fined $10,000 and crew member Adam Brown has been suspended indefinitely from NASCAR.
