Ricky Stenhouse Jr. said Saturday at Charlotte Motor Speedway that he and his JTG Daugherty Racing team are still undecided if they will appeal penalties handed down from NASCAR after last week‘s post-race fight with Kyle Busch.

Stenhouse and JTG Daugherty have the ability to appeal the punishment levied after the All-Star Race at North Wilkesboro, where Stenhouse threw a punch at Kyle Busch in a post-race fracas near the team haulers.

The team has until 5 p.m. ET Tuesday to inform NASCAR officials if it will appeal.

“We‘re still undecided,” Stenhouse said during his Saturday media availability. “I think we spent all week really focused on just racing here at Charlotte and what we needed to do to run well here. We‘ve got until next week to kind of figure that out. But our main focus was just getting back on track and making sure we have a strong run Sunday.”
