Roush satisfied with NASCAR action

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

Roger Penske.

“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.
