What happened between you and Richard Childress following Saturday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race?
“There was an altercation in the garage area — in the Truck garage area — on my way out to my motorhome. Fortunately, NASCAR is taking the situation seriously and is looking into it, and making their decisions based what facts they can discover.”
Did you meet with NASCAR and what did you discuss?
“I met with NASCAR (Sunday morning). Just discussed with them the incident to my best recollection and from there they will take all their discoveries and all their findings and make the best decision they feel possible.”
Do you think NASCAR should penalize Richard Childress?
“That’s not my decision. That’s NASCAR’s decision. Whatever they feel best to protect their sport and to protect what we have going on here is to their best discretion. I’m all for whatever they decide to do.”
Do you have any reaction to Mike Helton’s comments from this morning?
“All I can say is I did hear what (Mike) Helton said and I follow by what they said. I don’t know that I did anything out of the ordinary that would provoke something of Mr. Childress. Mr. Helton gave a good description of events and what they saw happen and what further penalties might be.”
Do you plan any action outside of what NASCAR may decide?
“I’m going to leave it up to NASCAR and let them decide what they feel is best.”
