Carson Hocevar fined $50,000, docked 25 points for spinning out Harrison Burton under caution

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Carson Hocevar was fined $50,000 and docked 25 driver points for spinning out Harrison Burton under caution during Sunday’s Ally 400 at Nashville Speedway.

NASCAR announced the penalty on Tuesday against Hocevar, who drives the Spire Motorsports No. 77.

Hocevar hit Burton from behind, sending him sideways. Burton’s No. 21 car ended up against the wall.

Denny Hamlin, on his podcast Monday, called on NASCAR to take action against Hocevar, whom he characterized as a “repeat offender.”

“I’m gonna call on NASCAR here, they need to do something to Carson,” Hamlin said. “They don’t need to suspend him or anything like that, but they need to dig into his pocket a little bit because I think you have to.”
