NASCAR may become less lenient on drivers who spin with a flat tire after an incident in last weekend’s Camping World Truck Series race, a series official told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio on Tuesday.
Kyle Busch‘s truck had a tire go down in last week’s race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. He moved the truck down to the apron of the track and it spun there, creating a caution.
NASCAR typically gives drivers the benefit of the doubt in such situations. Series officials fined Bubba Wallace $50,000 and docked him 50 points in Nov. 2019 after he admitted to NBC Sports that he intentionally spun at Texas to get a caution after suffering a flat tire.

Kyle Busch wouldn’t explain what happened on his spin so whether he spun to bring out the caution is left open to interpretation. What he said (or didn’t say): pic.twitter.com/E88caYiiwn
