Kurt Busch’s anger has cost him again. Tuesday NASCAR fined Busch $50,000 and placed him on NASCAR probation until July 25 for his role in an altercation after last Saturday nights Southern 500.
Busch was involved in an on-track incident late in the race that swept up the Chevy driven by Ryan Newman. During a subsequent caution, Busch peeled out of his pits and through the pit stall of Newman.
After the race was over, the crews for Newman and Busch faced off in the pits. Busch bumped into the Chevy of Newman as they came to a stop. As the crews began to shove and shout at each other, Busch began yelling and had to be restrained. While the crews scuffled, a NASCAR official somehow ended up on the hood of a race car. MORE>>>
