The postrace brouhaha was the theme of a special episode of the NASCAR on NBC podcast with Sunday’s memorable scene in the pits at Las Vegas Motor Speedway remaining a top story.

NASCAR officials indicated Monday that Busch, who attempted to throw a punch at Logano, is unlikely to face punishment for his actions, and team members in the scrum also might escape penalties.

NBC’s NASCAR reporters Nate Ryan and Dustin Long discussed their reactions to the postrace squabble Monday morning.

Among the topics discussed:

–Whether a driver should be suspended for connecting with a punch;

–Precedents that have been set by NASCAR in such situations;

–The role of crew members in pit scuffles;

–Logano’s penchant for standing his ground and how it might have helped thrust him into the center of many feuds with veterans.
