The man who threw down NASCAR celebrity Denny Hamlin throughout a brawl with Joey Logano on Sunday was simply suspended 1 race by the league … officers introduced Monday.
If ya missed it … Hamlin and Logano actually acquired into it at Martinsville Speedway over the weekend — carrying some on-track drama onto pit highway.
The two stars have been discussing their in-race driving … when impulsively Logano gave a tough shove to Hamlin’s shoulder.
That’s when Denny went after Joey … and all hell broke unfastened — with each of the drivers’ pit crews hopping into the melee.
But, earlier than Denny might get his palms on Logano … considered one of Joey’s pit crewmember grabbed Denny by the neck and threw him to the bottom!!!
Denny was pissed … however the brawl was rapidly calmed down by NASCAR officers.
On Monday, the league handed down punishment for the battle … banning Logano’s pit crew member — tire technician Dave Nichols Jr. — for one race for his position in grabbing Hamlin.
As for the remainder of the blokes concerned within the fracas, appears NASCAR has let all of them off with a warning.
It’s a reasonably large deal for Logano to be down a person subsequent week … there are solely two races remaining on this spherical of the playoffs — and Logano’s combating HARD for a spot within the subsequent spherical.
