NASCAR commonly lets driver’s who run afoul of their rules to set the expiration of the probation periods at the end of the year. Remember Jeff Gordon (#24) wrecking Clint Bowyer (#15) on purpose at Phoenix. After today, Jeff can go after Clint again.
Kurt Busch who started out the season in the Phoenix Racing #51 and finished the year in the #78 Furniture Row Chevy had to sit out the race at Pocono. There are a lot of people wondering if Kurt can make it through the 2013 season without getting into trouble.
Even the Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski got himself in trouble for Phone-gate.
