NASCAR has penalized Jonathan Brown and Jason Myers for their roles in an incident at Bowman Gray Stadium (NC) on Saturday, July 27, levying fines and suspensions for both drivers.
Per a tweet from @NASCARHomeTrack, both drivers will miss this Saturday’s 100-lap Modified feature and receive $1,000 fines after the incident.
“NASCAR has penalized Jason Myers and Jonathan Brown $1,000 apiece and both are suspended from next Whelen All-American Series event at Bowman Gray Stadium for their on-track actions there during last weekend’s NWAAS event,” the tweet reads.
After a pair of on-track incidents over the course of last Saturday’s twin features in the Modifieds, the two drivers repeatedly rammed into each other under caution.
Following the one-race suspensions, Myers and Brown will be eligible to return to action on Saturday, August 10 for Bowman Gray’s twin 50-lap features.
Despite Saturday’s incident, Brown left the race third in Bowman Gray Stadium Modified points, 16 markers behind points leader Burt Myers and eight points behind second-place Tim Brown.
