The normally calm and well-mannered Ashton Lewis let his temper get the better half of him during Saturday's Busch Series event. Driving the No. 36 Dodge, Hank Parker Jr. got in the back of Lewis' No. 46 Chevy and sent him spinning.

After contact with the wall, Lewis took his car to the garage for repairs. He re-entered the race and shortly after, the Welliver-Jesel Motorsports Dodge, driven by Parker, was hit from behind by Lewis. Neither driver finished the race. NASCAR officials called Lewis off of the track and forced him to park his car. Parker on the other hand, was unable to repair the damage.

As in Kevin Harvick's case of rough driving, there was a fine of $2,500. Lewis was also placed on probation until June 12.
