NASCAR has pulled Michael Waltrip off the track for aggressive driving at Talladega Superspeedway.

Waltrip was warned to give Jimmie Johnson some space during
Friday's final practice session as he bump-drafted behind Johnson's
car. When Waltrip didn't let up, he was black-flagged for the final
30 minutes of practice.

NASCAR is keeping a close eye on bump-drafting this weekend, in
large part because of the fallout over the harrowing accident on
the final lap of April's race at Talladega. Carl Edwards' car was
hit by winner Brad Keselowski, and the contact sent Edwards' car
airborne into the fence.

Several fans were hurt by flying debris.
