Team owner Jack Roush said Wednesday he’s satisfied with the
penalty NASCAR levied against driver Carl Edwards for his
intentional accident with Brad Keselowski.
Edwards was in an early accident with Keselowski in Sunday’s
race at Atlanta, and later returned to the track and deliberately
wrecked Keselowski. The contact sent Keselowki’s car airborne, and
NASCAR parked Edwards for the remainder of the race.
On Tuesday, he was placed on probation for three races.
“We are satisfied that NASCAR fairly considered all the
circumstances in its decision to discipline Carl,” said Roush.
Roush said he looked forward to a NASCAR-called meeting next
weekend at Bristol between the two drivers and Keselowski car owner
“It is our hope to put this behind us at that time,” said
Roush, who added the incident overlooked an otherwise good day in
Atlanta for the Roush Fenway Racing team.
