Kyle Busch fined, placed on probation

BY foxsports • November 7, 2011

NASCAR officials have fined Kyle Busch $50,000 and placed him on probation until Dec. 31 for his actions during the Nov. 4 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway.

The sanctioning body deemed that Busch violated the section of the rule book concerning "actions detrimental to stock car racing." After an incident in which Busch crashed Ron Hornaday Jr.'s truck intentionally in the race, NASCAR took immediate action, parking Busch for the remainder of Friday night’s event and maintaining the parked position for the NASCAR Nationwide and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events Saturday and Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway.

On Monday, the parking directive was lifted by NASCAR.

In issuing Monday’s penalty, NASCAR's statement went on to say that “if during the remaining NASCAR events in 2011 there is another action by the competitor that is deemed by NASCAR officials as detrimental to stock car racing or to NASCAR, or is disruptive to the orderly conduct of an event, the competitor will be suspended indefinitely from NASCAR.”
