Some people questioned the Jonathan Brown penalty from Bowman Gray Stadium the week of the Advance Auto Parts 199.
Brown was suspended from racing for two events yet he showed up for the season finale at Bowman Gray for a 150 lap event for the featured Modified Series.
NASCARS’ Ed Cox explained that Browns penalty was for a two race suspension from the Whelen Southern Modified Tour.
“The suspension had nothing to do with the weekly events at Bowman Gray” reported Cox, “only the Whelen Tour events.”
Brown tangled with Jay Mize late in the race and spun in turn one. Brown then retaliated and hit the Mize car causing the two race suspension.
The race was being run under the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour rules and not the weekly event rules.
