Austin Cindric has been head and shoulders above the competition in Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Pennzoil 150 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course, but on a mid-Stage restart in Stage 2, Cindric was busted for jumping the restart to pass Chase Briscoe for the lead.
You be the judge, did NASCAR make the correct call?
PENALTY for @AustinCindric!

Due to this penalty, Cindric, who won Stage 1, went from nearly certain victory to needing a rally if he wants to win.
