Tempers were high among drivers during Sunday’s HighPoint.com 400 at Pocono Raceway.
Richard Childress Racing driver Austin Dillon was ruled out of Sunday’s race, following an unlucky wreck.
Dillon was mad at 23Xi No. 45 Tyler Reddick which led to him throwing his helmet at Reddick.
The RCR No.3 took off his gloves and tossed them on the dash. He then climbed from his car and took off his helmet.
Austin Dillon says he wished he would have timed his helmet throw a little better.
In his post-race interview with Fox Bob Pockrass Dillon describes why he was mad with Tyler Reddick.
“At this point I really don’t know, I thought was doing the right thing just going in the middle lane of the track I wasn’t on the bottom lane I was gonna hold the middle.” – said Austin Dillion
“He (Reddick) drove up into me from the bottom lane.”
