Sauter parked by NASCAR after intentional wreck

NASCAR parked Johnny Sauter in Sunday’s M&Ms 200 Gander Outdoors Truck Series after he retaliated and slammed Austin Hill into the wall at Iowa Speedway.

Hill got into the rear of Sauter’s truck on Lap 137, causing Sauter to back into the outside wall.

Sauter got his truck going and hunted down Hill under caution, slamming Hill’s truck in the rear and pushing it into the wall on Lap 139.

NASCAR officials immediately ordered Sauter to park his truck in the garage, which he did. Hill’s truck suffered moderate damage but continued. Sauter and Hill were ordered to the NASCAR hauler after the race.

Whether Sauter will be penalized remains to be seen. NASCAR issued this statement: “Per normal procedures, any penalties that may result will be announced early in the week.”
