NASCAR HAS EYE ON DRIVER FEuD
Chapter one in the Carl Edwards-Brad Keselowski
feud resulted in Edwards serving a three-race probation last spring.
Chapter two could be determined today after NASCAR’s competition executives review the finish of Saturday night’s Nationwide Series race won by Edwards, who forced Keselowski into the wall and passed him on the final lap at Gateway International Raceway outside St. Louis.
NASCAR may not take any action against Edwards, who trimmed Keselowski’s lead in the Nationwide standings from 227 points to 168 points in what is essentially a twoman battle for the championship. But owner Chip Ganassi, whose company owns the NASCAR Sprint Cup cars of Jamie McMurray and Juan Pablo Montoya, said Monday: “Someone has to be the referee in this. I think NASCAR does a good job of that, but it’s hard to police. I think each guy should be allowed one move, but you shouldn’t be allowed to use your car as a weapon. I just thank God nobody gets hurt in any of these things.”
