NASCAR announced Thursday that it has reinstated Ty Norris, an executive with Michael Waltrip Racing. Norris had been indefinitely suspended from NASCAR last Sept. 9 as part of the penalties assessed to MWR following the sanctioning body’s review of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race Sept. 7 at Richmond International Raceway. It was the last of NASCAR’s regular season races and set the field for NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup.
A caution with seven laps to go that Sept. 7 at Richmond International Raceway set up a final three lap dash. It not only decided a race winner, Carl Edwards, but sealed the fate of Jeff Gordon and Ryan Newman. Both of whom fell short of making the Chase.
The caution was set off by Bowyer who spun along the frontstretch. A replay from Bowyer’s in-car camera that included the radio communication from his team of the final laps however showed what can only be termed as suspicious. MORE>>>
