Leffler Placed on Probation for Nashville Incident

Jim BobCorrespondent IApril 6, 2010

Keeping consistent with recent on-track retaliation, NASCAR has placed Jason Leffler on a three-race probation following his actions at Nashville Superspeedway last weekend.

Leffler was found in violation of section 12-1 of the 2010 Nationwide Series rule book, actions detrimental to stock car racing – aggressive driving, after he spun James Buescher in apparent retaliation during the Nashville 300 on Saturday.

Leffler’s probation will run until April 28.

The three-race probation penalty is identical to the penalty issued to Carl Edwards for the Sprint Cup Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway three races ago for on-track retaliation.
