According to The Daily Telegraph, the former NASCAR driver has been banned from racing in Australia after he did donuts on the streets of Darwin on Saturday night. The act was caught on video and Gordon was afterwards fined $4,000 while also receiving a ban for racing by the Confederation of Australian Motorsport (CAMS).
CAMS oversees all racing in Australia and is the governing body of the event Gordon was in Australia for over the weekend. Gordon was racing with Stadium Super Trucks, which has been touring the U.S. and throughout the world in the past few weeks. Gordon formed the series. Gordon also was a NASCAR driver from 1997-2012 with some years taking a break.
But after the Series’ final event in Darwin this weekend, may not be coming back for some time. At the least Gordon will not be racing with the Series after judge Richard Coats’ ruling Monday.
“It’s one of the busiest streets in Darwin, I don’t believe the professional driving skills are an excuse,” he said. “I wish I could take away your professional license, but unfortunately I don’t have the power to do that. … (I) would have considered sentencing Gordon to jail time for the stunt if he had been in trouble before.”
