TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) Brad Keselowski says it's ''unfortunate'' that Tony Stewart got caught up in the incidents at Charlotte, but that he's not dwelling on ''all that garbage.''

NASCAR fined both drivers for their behavior on the track before other tempers flared outside the cars.

Keselowksi was fined $50,000 and Stewart $25,000. Stewart backed into Keselowski's car after Keselowski inadvertently ran into him from behind while the entire field headed toward pit road.

Keselowski also had post-race run-ins with Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin.

Stewart has faced increased scrutiny since the Aug. 9 accident that killed sprint car driver Kevin Ward Jr. Several news outlets focused on Stewart, but Keselowski said he felt Stewart shouldn't have been dragged into it.
