NASCAR downplayed the incident and tried to redirect attention to the worthy winner in pit lane, but added that they will be looking at everything that happened at the usual Tuesday post-race wrap-up meeting and deciding if any penalties and sanctions are due to any driver as a result of what happened on Saturday night.
Whatever the decisions, though, this time it won't affect the race winner: almost three years after being stripped of his "first win" at Talladega, this time Regan Smith had won it fair and square. About time too for the 27-year-old New Yorker, and quite right!
