With such high implications at Richmond, controversy ignited over Clint Bowyer allegedly spinning-out with seven laps to go, so that Michael Waltrip Racing teammate Truex could advance—afterwards, the team received the biggest penalty in NASCAR history (minus 50 points for all three MWR cars & Truex subsequently eliminated).
