NASCAR handed down severe penalties in the aftermath of last Sunday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park in Bowmanville, Ontario.
An on-track clash between drivers Max Papis and Mike Skeen on the final lap spilled over and continued off the track. First a crewmember reached inside Papis’ truck but was quickly pulled out by bystanders.
Moments later just after Papis had given a TV interview, cameras caught a woman confronting Papis; she slapped the driver, who appears to be much taller than her, in his face before stomping off. The woman was later identified as Kelli Heaphy and alleged to be the girlfriend of Skeen. Papis reported Sunday that the slap had dislocated his jaw, but added that he did not retaliate. Video of the incident went viral on the Internet after repeated showings on network sports shows. MORE>>>
