NASCAR, Childress Fined 150k

Holy cow! From Detroit Free Press.

Owner Richard Childress has a dust up with Kyle Busch and gets fined $150,000.

Richard Childress was fined $150,000 and placed on probation Monday for assaulting Kyle Busch, the latest incident in an ongoing feud between NASCAR's most polarizing driver and Childress' race teams.

The probation includes all NASCAR-sanctioned events and runs through Dec. 31.

NASCAR did not find any fault with Busch, who is on probation for an incident with Richard Childress Racing driver Kevin Harvick.

Childress issued a statement accepting blame. Childress, 65, apparently approached Busch after Saturday's trucks race, placed him in a headlock and punched him several times.

First Harvick, now Childress. 

I feel for you DR. I really do.

It's so easy to punch a Busch. I'm just happy that Childress didn't get the Jimmy Spencer treatment.

Say, doesn't that make two RCR vehicles Kyle's at least tried to wreck post-race? At least he didn't send it flying down pit road without a driver this time.

The odds of Shrub taking the checkers in his next race isn't good, or at least it shouldn't be.
