NASCAR driver Carl Edwards is facing a suspension after he intentionally wrecked Brad Keselowski at the Kobalt Tools 500. In the final laps of the race, Edwards intentionally bumped Keselowski which sent his car airborne.
Edwards admits to intentionally wrecking Keselowski, although he says that he did not mean to send his car airborne. Keselowski has made his fair share of enemies on the NASCAR circuit for his aggressive driving. Keselowski bumped Edwards earlier in the race which caused Edwards to fall behind.
“Considering that Brad wrecks me with no regard for anyones safety or hard work, should I: A-Keep letting him wreck me? B-Confront him after the race? C-Wait til bristol and collect other cars? or D-Take care of it now? I want to be clear that I was surprised at his flight and very relieved when he walked away. Every person has to decide what code they want to live by and hopefully this explains mine.”
NASCAR has been encouraging drivers to be aggressive and they have been lenient with their discipline so far this year. If NASCAR suspends Edwards, they may put an end to the reckless and exciting driving that has occurred this year. If they don’t suspend Edwards, the aggressive driving could get out of control and a driver or a NASCAR fan could be seriously injured.
