The tire changer had no idea that would happen fine him. He's fired or put on suspension I'd wager on.

As far as I know Jimmy Watts was suspended for the rest of the race ,but according to Jayski.com he was awaiting more possible penalties from NASCAR.

It was a BAD choice to go out that far to retrieve a tire. It's something called common sense to know that you don't do something like that when 43 car's are going around the track at almost 200 mph and that one OR more of them could of wrecked an ended up in the grass.

I know a lot of driver's sure wanted to rake him over the coal's .

Stupid question, but would NASCAR have thrown the caution for tire ("Debris") anyway, or wait for someone to spin & hit it!?

NASCAR will probably give him a bonus for causing a caution.

Nascar would have waited for the "GREENFLAG" pitstops to have been completed, then they would have thrown the caution.
