NASCAR annouced on Monday that there would be no penalties for the post race incident between Xfinity Series drivers Colt Custer and Tyler Reddick.
“In those situations, the key for us is to make sure that the crew members are not coming in and escalating things,” O’Donnell told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio while appearing on “The Morning Drive”. “If anything, we’ve just got to go back and look and make sure that’s not the case from our perspective.

Following Saturday’s race, Custer and Reddick approached and placed hands on each other.
“There’s a lot on the line there for the drivers and we certainly don’t want to encourage that but understand that it gets heated at times. Our thing is to make sure crew members are not getting in there and piling on a driver so to speak vs. trying to deescalate the situation.”
