Discrimination and discriminatory comments are dehumanizing to everyone it touches. As a series, we will continue to have a 0 tolerance policy toward this behavior and evolve our policies to reflect this.
These penalties are reflective of the actions and words in the pit area during and after the race. As for the racing incident, we would like to clarify that the 19 had stopped being scored when this retaliation happened.
