Kyle Busch Fined $50K, Put On Probation By NASCAR

NASCAR has fined Kyle Busch $50,000 and has placed the driver on probation through the remainder of the year, according to ESPN.com

The penalty comes as a result of his retaliatory actions at Texas Motor Speedway last week. Busch was not allowed to race in Saturday’s Nationwide Series race and Sunday’s Sprint Cup race as a result of his actions.

"I understand why I was taken out of the car for the rest of the weekend. NASCAR officials had to act, and I accept their punishment and take full responsibility for my actions," Busch said in a statement to the media. "As a racecar driver, the hardest thing to do is to sit on the sidelines listening to cars on the track when you know you should be out there competing. For this, I have no one to blame but myself."

As part of NASCAR’s probation, if Busch has any other actions this season that the governing body determines as detrimental to NASCAR, he will immediately be suspended.

Bush will be allowed to race this weekend at Phoenix International Raceway.
