During the race, Gase was bumped on corner entry to Turn 1 by Dawson Cram, causing Gase’s No. 35 NCPC Race Against Crime Chevy to collide rear-end first into the outside SAFER barrier. In response, Gase climbed out of his car, tore off the already-dangling rear bumper, and hurled it toward Cram’s No. 4 Chevrolet, striking the car directly in the windshield. As a result of this action, NASCAR imposed a fine for creating an unsafe environment.

This action violated Sections 8.8.8K of the NASCAR Rule Book, which states: “A safety violation may be imposed for any action or omission by a Competitor or vehicle that creates an unsafe environment or poses a threat to the safety of the Competitors, as determined by NASCAR”

Fans flooded the comment section criticizing NASCAR for its inconsistent penalties. Many fans referenced previous incidents and argued that such occurrences would become commonplace if NASCAR failed to impose strict bans instead of minor penalties.

Aftermath of the drama Joey Gase took his stance

Gase’s post-race comments reveal a mix of frustration and concern. While he wanted to make a point to Cram, he also acknowledged the young driver’s talent. It’s clear that emotions were running high, and Gase’s decision to give Cram a “souvenir” was both symbolic and risky.

“I just wanted to give him a souvenir,” Gase said. “Let him know what he did. I gave the kid his first ever start in Xfinity and comes over borrows our tools and parts and pieces every week. And you know, he’s a good kid, but he loses his head every frickin race.”
