On Tuesday, Josh Williams was given a one-race suspension as punishment for parking his car at the start-finish line at Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Williams complained to his crew via radio before exiting the car. He stated it was apparently NASCAR regulations to park your vehicle following any kind of wreck. Insisted Williams: “This is some bull you know what. I’ve never heard of this in my life.”
