NASCAR is unmistakably NOT messing about its COVID security rules … it just dropped the sledge on Chip Ganassi for an infringement, hitting the renowned group proprietor with both a boycott and a fine.
NASCAR authorities say at a race at Daytona International Speedway a weekend ago, Ganassi brought “a non-essential individual that was restricted from the footprint” into the opposition region.
Clearly, it’s a colossal no-no during the pandemic … the organization is attempting like damnation to restrict any possible spread of the Covid, and unapproved visitors positively bargain that.
Thus, to send a harsh message, NASCAR hit Ganassi with a one-race suspension just as a $30,000 fine.
Ganassi will have the chance to claim … in any case, until further notice, he’s banned from this current end of the week’s races at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
62-year-old Chip is perhaps the greatest name … his groups have accumulated 20 titles and more than 200 successes, including a Daytona 500 triumph and numerous Indianapolis 500 crowns.
