NASCAR fined Darrell Wallace Jr. $15,000 on Wednesday as a behavioral penalty under Sections 12.1; 12.8 a; 12.8.1 b of the NASCAR Rule Book. Those sections pertain to disciplinary action and NASCAR member conduct.

Section 12.1 of the rule book deals with the general procedure for a violation of NASCAR rules.
Rule 12.8 a deals with NASCAR membership and member conduct.
Rule 12.8.1 b deals with potential penalties and details having to do with member conduct.
