NASCAR has placed drivers Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski on probation following their late-race incident during last weekend's Nationwide race at Gateway International Raceway.
Edwards was fined $25,000 and docked 60 Nationwide Series driver
points and both Edwards and Keselowski were placed on probation
through Dec. 31. Jack Roush, owner of Edwards' No. 60 Ford, was
also docked 60 series championship points.
Trouble began as the two drivers were battling for the lead on
the final lap.
Keselowski nudged Edwards out of the way to take the lead and
Edwards returned the favor in the final straightaway, sending
Keselowski into the outside wall and starting a chain reaction that
collected 10 cars in all while Edwards raced to his second victory
of the season.
