Noah Gragson, Daniel Hemric Scuffle Post Race at Atlanta: UPDATE

UPDATE: Scott Miller, NASCAR Senior Vice President, Competition:

“We reviewed the incident which occurred between the 9 and 18 cars on pit road during Saturday night’s race at Atlanta Motor Speedway, and met with Noah Gragson after the event. A chain reaction of events led to the 18 and 9 both overshooting their pit stalls. The 9 ended up both long and out of his pit box to the outside, and needed to back up as far as possible to have any chance at fully pulling into his box. After reviewing the video, it is our judgement that the contact was not deliberate.”

Original post: Following Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series EchoPark 250 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Daniel Hemric and Noah Gragson got into a scuffle on pit road.

Hemric approached Gragson to show his displeasure after Gragson backed into Hemric’s car on pit road during pit stops earlier in the race and put a hole in the nose of his No. 18 Toyota. Gragson was upset because Hemric slowed up his team’s stop after missing his pit stall and backing into his own.

Following the event, Hemric stated why he was upset with Gragson.

On Twitter, Gragson said he didn’t intentionally back into the No. 18 on pit road to ruin Hemric’s day.

Gragson then tweeted out the video of his pit stop.
