NASCAR has penalized members of Richard Childress Racing for their part in last Saturday's Camping World Truck Series race incidents at Martinsville Speedway.
Crew chief Paul (Marcus) Richmond has been fined $10,000 and crew member Adam Brown has been indefinitely suspended from NASCAR. Both are members of the No. 3 team of driver Ty Dillon.
The punishment came in the wake of the incident between Dillon and Kevin Harvick during last Saturday's Kroger 200 at Martinsville. After the duo tangled on the race track, the feud boiled over to both drivers making contact with one another after the caution flag was display and then boiled over to pit road.
When Harvick stopped in Dillon's pit several members of the No. 3 team rushed his truck and a rubber mallet flew toward the truck for behind pit wall.
“I don’t care what they throw at me," said Harvick after the race. "It’s exactly why I’m leaving RCR because you’ve got those punk ... kids coming up."
