Baxter Fined $5K For Wallace Hair Pull

NASCAR has penalized Jerry Baxter, crew chief for the #99 car driven by Patrick Carpentier in last Saturday's NASCAR Nationwide Series NAPA Auto Parts 200 at Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, for his actions following the completion of the race.

Baxter has been fined $5,000 and placed on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31 for violating Section 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing – involved in an altercation on pit road after the completion of the race). Baxter reached into Steve Wallace's car after the race and grabbed him by the hair, chastising him for his role in a crash that eliminated Carpentier.

  1. So where do we send donation to Baxter? Or maybe I can send a razor to Steve so it's safer to take his helmet off on pitlane
