NASCAR’s Elton Sawyer said drivers in all three series will receive “stern communication” this week about cleaning up restarts.
Sawyer, NASCAR’s senior vice president of competition, made the comments on Tuesday morning on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. The response came when asked about how NASCAR viewed the multi-car crash on a restart in the Xfinity Series race Saturday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, which didn’t result in any penalties or warnings.
The crash occurred coming to a lap 71 restart. Those who got the worst of it were in the middle to back of the pack, such as Justin Allgaier and Parker Kligerman, when the field stacked up behind front-row leaders John Hunter Nemechek and Chandler Smith.
