JOLIET, IL - NASCAR has found no evidence that Paul Menard intentionally spun to cause the final caution at Richmond.
NASCAR president Mike Helton said Saturday at Chicagoland Speedway that he reviewed radio transmissions between Menard and his Richard Childress Racing team from last week's race and found "nothing conclusive" to indicate Menard spun on purpose.
At Richmond, Menard spun with 16 laps remaining and Jeff Gordon leading. The drivers pitted under caution, Menard teammate and RCR driver Kevin Harvick was first off pit road and held off Gordon to win his fourth race of the season.
Gordon has called the timing of the caution "a little fishy."
