Hoping to avoid a repeat of the controversial finish to the Nationwide Series race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, NASCAR official David Hoots delivered a stern lecture during the drivers' meeting before Sunday's Brickyard 400.
Danica Patrick said Thursday she isn't sure if NASCAR will penalize her for intentionally wrecking Sam Hornish Jr. at Talladega Superspeedway.
"We reviewed the situation that took place," Balash said. "At the end of the day, the 2 car (Sadler) after all things that we looked at was clearly ahead of the leader and we made a decision."
NASCAR Nationwide Series director Joe Balash said officials reviewed video of the incident before Sadler pulled off the track to serve the penalty.
