Joey Gase fined $5,000 by NASCAR for Richmond violation

NASCAR fined Xfinity Series driver Joey Gase $5,000 for a safety infraction during Saturday’s race at Richmond Raceway. The incident involved Gase walking down the track and throwing his bumper cover at Dawson Cram’s car after a crash caused by Cram. This action violated Section 8.8.8K of the Xfinity Rule Book, which states that any action or omission that poses a threat to the safety of the competitors may result in a safety violation.

Joey Logano and Ryan Blaney are optimistic heading into the Bass Pro Shops Night Race at Martinsville Speedway, looking to build on their recent successes. However, the penalty to Gase serves as a reminder of the importance of safety on the track. NASCAR’s Senior Vice President of Competition, Elton Sawyer, addressed the incident involving Gase on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio and expressed understanding for Gase’s frustration as a car owner responsible for repairs but emphasized the importance of safety. Walking down the track during a caution period poses serious risks to everyone involved.

In addition to Gase’s fine, Xfinity crew chiefs were also penalized for safety violations. The crew chiefs of the No. 16, No. 19, and No. 26 cars were fined $5,000 each for not having all five lug nuts secure on each wheel. These penalties serve as reminders of NASCAR’s commitment to safety and ensuring a secure racing environment for all competitors.
