NASCAR officials announced Tuesday that they have issued an indefinite suspension to Josh Reaume, a driver and team owner in the Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series.

Reaume was indefinitely barred for violating Sections 12.1 and 12.8.1.e in the NASCAR Rule Book. NASCAR officials confirmed that the behavioral penalty stemmed from a recent post Reaume made on social media, without revealing the specific nature of its content.

The Rule Book’s Section 12.1 involves general disciplinary action, while 12.8.1.e concerns specific items regarding NASCAR member conduct. Those conduct guidelines include details for violations through “public statement and/or communication that criticizes, ridicules, or otherwise disparages another person based upon that person’s race, color, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, age, or handicapping condition.”

The Reaume Brother Racing team fielded at least two entries in every Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series event this season. Josh Reaume made 12 Gander Trucks starts as a driver-owner and added two spot starts in the Xfinity Series this year.
