NASCAR Won’t Punish Drivers For Fighting After Kentucky Xfinity Race


NASCAR apparently had little issue with Harrison Burton and Noah Gragson fighting last Friday at Kentucky Speedway.

The Xfinity Series drivers traded fists shortly after the Alsco 300, which saw Burton and Gragson finish 12th and seventh, respectively. Many assumed that, if nothing else, the drivers would receive a minor punishment for violating social distancing guidelines.

Alas, when NASCAR on Tuesday released the race penalty report, neither driver was on it.

NASCAR indicated after the race that it was satisfied with Burton and Gragson’s explanations, and thus the lack of penalty shouldn’t come as a surprise.

The next Xfinity Series race is scheduled for Saturday afternoon at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
