A senior NASCAR official said no penalties were called against Denny Hamlin or Chase Elliott for their actions against Ross Chastain last weekend because “we didn’t see a blatant takeout or anything like that.”
Scott Miller, NASCAR senior vice president of competition, explained the sanctioning body’s point of view during an appearance Tuesday on “The Morning Drive” on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio with co-hosts Pete Pistone and Nate Ryan.
Miller said that series officials may meet with the drivers this weekend at Sonoma Raceway.
“We haven’t spoken to any of the parties,” Miller said on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. “It’s usually better to kind of let things die down and speak to them before we hit the track again, rather than do it at the racetrack. We’ll do that if it’s absolutely necessary.
