NASCAR issued a behavioral penalty to Richard Petty Motorsports driver Bubba Wallace on Saturday for intentionally manipulating competition last weekend at Texas Motor Speedway.
The driver has been fined $50,000 and docked 50 driver points as a result.
Wallace brought out a caution during a green-flag pit cycle when his car spun after a tire began going down. Kyle Larson was perhaps the most vocal driver to question if Wallace intentionally spun his car, and later Friday said his team looked at the data, which bolstered his claim.
Larson, a playoff driver running in the top five at the time, and others had to alter their pit strategy at Texas as a result.
NASCAR Senior Vice President of Competition Scott Miller is expected to meet with reporters later this afternoon at ISM Raceway in Phoenix.
