Roush satisfied with Edwards penalty
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Team owner Jack Roush said Wednesday he's satisfied with the penalty NASCAR levied against driver Carl Edwards for his intentional accident with Brad Keselowski.
Edwards was in an early accident with Keselowski in Sunday's race at Atlanta, and later returned to the track and deliberately wrecked Keselowski. The contact sent Keselowki's car airborne, and NASCAR parked Edwards for the remainder of the race.
On Tuesday, he was placed on probation for three races.
"We are satisfied that NASCAR fairly considered all the circumstances in its decision to discipline Carl," said Roush.
Roush said he looked forward to a NASCAR-called meeting next weekend at Bristol between the two drivers and Keselowski car owner Roger Penske.
"It is our hope to put this behind us at that time," said Roush, who added the incident overlooked an otherwise good day in Atlanta for the Roush Fenway Racing team.
