One innocent mistake got a member of Kevin Harvick’s team booted


NASCAR officials are apparently strict when it comes to handing out and revoking credentials for crew members. Kevin Harvick's spotter, Tim Fedewa, learned that the hard way.

While Harvick was practicing for the Brickyard 400, Fedewa mishandled a sandwich and dropped it over the side of the railing. Audio of the incident was captured on NBC during Harvick's practice.

When Fedewa went to retrieve his sandwich, his credentials were revoked by NASCAR officials, so he couldn't get back up to where he was spotting for Harvick.


Fedewa got his credentials back about 45 minutes after the practice session ended. No word on whether the sandwich survived the fall.

Hopefully Fedewa was eating a Jimmy John's sandwich considering the company sponsors Harvick's No. 4 car.
