NASCAR has suspended owner-driver Josh Reaume indefinitely. He is an owner-driver in the Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series.
The governing body said that Reaume made a social media post online that they flagged. It’s not clear what might have been said or done by the driver.
He has been suspended for violating Sections 12.1 and 126.96.36.199 in the NASCAR Rule Book. The violation is from a “public statement and/or communication that criticizes, ridicules, or otherwise disparages another person based upon that person’s race, color, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, age, or handicapping condition.”

He only has one Top 10 as he finished sixth in the 2019 NextEra Energy 250 in the TheChallengeBook.com entry for Josh Reaume Racing on Friday, February 15, 2019, at Daytona International Speedway, in Daytona Beach, Florida. Reaume is the second NASCAR driver to be suspended indefinitely this year for social media posts.
It’s not clear what is the next domino in that case.
