As expected, there were fairly harsh penalties levied – but no suspensions handed out – for Rowan Pennink and Ted Christopher for their on track aggressiveness and victory lane dustup Friday at Stafford Motor Speedway.
Rowan Pennink offered a massive shot to Christopher’s rear bumper going into turn three on the final lap of Friday’s 40-lap NASCAR Whelen All-American Series SK Modified feature. The shot sent Christopher up the track and allowed Pennink to pass him for the lead and take the win in the feature.
Christopher held on to finish second. During the post-race victory lane ceremonies Christopher approached Pennink and shoving turned to swinging during a brief melee.
Tuesday Stafford Motor Speedway announced penalties for both drivers.
Pennink was penalized for over-aggresive driving. His penalties included being removed from the handicap system and being forced to start last in the heats and features for the next two events, loss of one tire credit, loss of all practice time for the next event and being placed on probation for the next two events.
Christopher was penalized for actions detrimental to the sport, off track. His penalties were matching the penalties given to Pennink.
Pennink, who has won the last two SK Modified championships at Stafford, was celebrating his first feature win of the season Friday. He is currently fifth in the division standings, 28 points behind leader Chase Dowling with four events remaining this season. Christopher, who has a division leading five victories this year, is fourth in the standings, 24 points behind Dowling.
