Sunday’s Sprint Cup Race at Texas Motor Speedway wherein both Jimmie Johnson and Brad Keselowski seem to have been discussed adequately regarding jumping a restart to the fish line has not been looked upon as a serious offence worthy of being penalised by NASCAR officials. Officials stated that they did not need to take a second look at the Sunday events to help in determining whether Jimmie Johnson passed Brad Keselowski to the finish line on the final restart.
Jumping a restart got fans angry. Officials at NASCAR stated that for a driver to be penalized it has to be an obvious violation as was seen this t year with Elliot Sadler at the Nationwide Series Race in Indianapolis.
As per rules and regulations under the restart category second place driver is not permitted to beat the leader to starting line, however NASCAR officials have stated that there is no need to use timing loop at start line or a video camera to help them make their decision.
