Wallace Jr fined for NASCAR race control "muppets" insult
Xfinity Series driver Darrell Wallace Jr. has been issued a behavioral penalty from NASCAR for a tweet posted following last Friday night’s race at Daytona International Speedway.
NASCAR fined Wallace $15,000 on Wednesday for the following post on his Twitter account...
There was not an immediate response from his Roush Fenway Racing team on whether Wallace would appeal the penalty.
The race featured a last-lap wreck in which NASCAR threw the caution flag shortly before the leaders reached the checkered flag.
It took several minutes to review tape before NASCAR declared Aric Almirola the winner of the event.
Also Wednesday, Jamie McMurray’s Sprint Cup team received a written warning for twice failing the Laser Inspection Station part of inspection prior to last Saturday night’s Coke Zero 400.
