INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Hoping to avoid a repeat of the controversial finish to the Nationwide Series race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, NASCAR managing event director David Hoots delivered a stern lecture during the drivers' meeting before Sunday's Brickyard 400.
Still, some drivers walked away from the meeting wondering what they're supposed to do if they're stuck in the same position that Elliott Sadler was on Saturday.
Sadler was penalized for jumping the restart near the end of Saturday's race. Sadler said race leader Brad Keselowski slowed unexpectedly when he spun his tires on the restart, and Sadler had no choice but to keep going because he was getting pushed by the cars behind him.
Sadler's team owner, Richard Childress, still was fuming about the decision Sunday morning.
