DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.  – NASCAR has penalized Richard Petty Motorsports developmental driver Corey LaJoie.

The likely reason for the penalty is a comment LaJoie posted on his twitter account. The third-generation driver, a regular in the NASCAR K&N East Series, will be required to participate in sensitivity training as directed by NASCAR, and has been placed on indefinite probation for violating the sanctioning body’s Code of Conduct policy.

Corey LaJoie was found to have violated Sections 7-5, (Code of Conduct) and 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing) of the 2013 NASCAR Rule Book.

“Corey LaJoie recently issued an insensitive and intolerable communication that has no place in our sport,” said George Silbermann, NASCAR’s vice president, Regional and Touring Series. “Each of NASCAR’s 2013 series-specific Rule Books includes our Code of Conduct that unequivocally states our stance specific to the use of demeaning language. We expect our entire industry to adhere to that Code.”
