    Austin Dillon asks NASCAR to be fair by suspending Austin Cindric for intentionally wrecking him

    Austin Dillon asks NASCAR to be fair by suspending Austin Cindric

    Austin Dillon is the latest driver to ask for suspension for another driver for an intentional wreck.

    The Richard Childress Racing’s No. 3 driver felt that Team Penske’s Austin Cindric wrecked him intentionally and called for NASCAR to suspend the No. 2 driver for the next race.

    “I was wrecked intentionally by him. Hooked right, just like Chase, Denny, and Bubba’s deal. He better be suspended next week,” Dillon said.

    The contact happened in Lap 219, when Cindric hooked Dillon, which made him crash against Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s No. 47 Chevrolet.

    Dillon called upon NASCAR to suspend Cindric by citing similar incidents in the past, one between Chase Elliott and Denny Hamlin this year and the other between Bubba Wallace and Kyle Larson last year. Elliott and Wallace were suspended for intentionally wrecking the other driver. In Elliott’s case, Hamlin called for the No. 9 driver’s suspension.

    Austin Dillon’s grandfather and RCR owner Richard Childress came in support of his grandson and said it looked like a payback.

    “He had drove up to about 10th until the 2 car wrecked him in there on purpose, sort of a payback,” Childress said.

    However, the incident with Dillon and Cindric looks less intentional than the previous two incidents. But NASCAR will certainly look at it and decide soon.
