Former NASCAR champion turned TV analyst Darrell Waltrip says NASCAR got the penalties against those involved in a post race fracas at Charlotte Motor Speedway last Saturday right.  The incident occurred at the conclusion of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Bank of America 500.

On the cool down lap after the checkered flag, Denny Hamlin showed his displeasure for contact on a late race restart with Brad Keselowski by brake checking him, slowing his Toyota down, as Keselowski’s Ford neared turn 3. Keselowski tried to retaliate by attempting to spin Hamlin. He failed and nearly spun out himself. As the cars made their way down pit road Matt Kenseth, who was parked and removing his safety equipment inside his Toyota, was hit hard by Keselowski’s Ford.

The contact also involved Tony Stewart. Stewart then angrily backed his Chevy into Keselowski’s Ford. MORE>>>
