Even in Karting, that is grounds for a DQ from the event and likely more.

I hope he loses his sponsorship over it.
Well, "Even in Karting" is amusing. I can tell you that emotions run real high in kart sprint races and the temptation to go off and possibly throw a hand is always a factor. Lots of plain ol' worker bee families out there with not much experience in higher levels of racing that supposedly have a little sophistication.

But you are correct, do what Torrence did and you are out for the day and maybe the season. So, we'll see what NHRA does for the start of the 2020 season as it appears that they are letting the points and championship stand for 2019.
