In an interview with NASCAR America, Chip Ganassi Racing driver Jamie McMurray said “some type” of disciplinary action was warranted against Kyle Busch following his post-race fight with Joey Logano on Sunday.
McMurray shared his thoughts before NASCAR announced no penalties would be issued for the altercation.
“That’s a really tough situation,” McMurray said. “I had a somewhat lengthy discussion with Jeff Gordon on the way home. He flew home with me. We talked about it. I assume they’ll have to take some action. The struggle with that is I have a 6-year-old. And when I got home, my 6-year-old asked me why Kyle Busch go punch Joey Logano? So my view as a racer is different than my view as a parent. So there’s got to be some discipline, some type of action taken towards Kyle. At the same time, I think it’s one thing for Kyle and Joey to have a confrontation and try to work that out. But crew members getting involved is not acceptable. Especially it looked like those guys ganged up on Kyle afterward, and I don’t think that’s right. I think if they want to break it up it’s one thing. But they don’t need to get involved in it.”
McMurray also talks about sharing a ride home with race-winner Martin Truex Jr.
