NASCAR announced Wednesday that Brian Allen, a crewmember on the NASCAR Xfinity Series team of driver Brian Scott has been placed on indefinite suspension following an altercation after last Saturday night’s Xfinity Series race at Kentucky Speedway. NASCAR Xfinity series driver Darrell Wallace Jr. and Whitney Scott, the wife of Brian Scott, have been placed on probation through the end of the year for their roles in the post-race altercation.

The incident began after the race when Brian Scott confronted Wallace. The two had made contact on the track on the last restart of the race.  Scott said in his post race interview that Wallace came down track and shut the door on his line through the turn.  The contact loosened Scott’s car and he wasn’t able to recover.

“I never felt like he even gave me a chance to get into the corner, and he loosened my right-rear wheel,” Scott said.MORE>>>
