No penalty for Austin Cindric for incident with Austin Dillon

Austin Cindric will not receive any penalties for his incident involving Austin Dillon at World Wide Technology Raceway.

Appearing on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, Elton Sawyer said that their would be no penalty given to Cindric after a review of the incident.

Both Dillon and Richard Childress had claimed that Cindric intentionally wrecked the No. 3 car during Sunday’s Enjoy Illinois 300.

Cindric made contact with the right rear of Dillon’s car sending him up the track and into Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

“We didn’t see anything — and haven’t seen anything — that really would rise to a level that would be a suspension or a penalty,” Sawyer said during the interview. “It looked like hard racing. One car coming up a little bit and another car going down.

“As we said last week, we take these incidents very serious when we see cars that are turned head-on into another car or head-on into the wall. I spent a lot of time (Monday) looking at that, looking at all the data, looking at TV footage and just deemed this one really hard racing.”

NASCAR plans to have Cindric and Dillon clear the air prior to the upcoming race at Sonoma Raceway.
