NASCAR fines Danica Patrick for Kahne incident

Overnight NASCAR Auto Club Ratings Decline 13 Percent NASCAR fines Danica Patrick for Kahne incident

NASCAR officials doled out fines to Danica Patrick and Kyle Busch on Thursday, NASCAR.com reports.

Patrick was ruled to have violated safety rules, including walking up to the racing surface after the incident and gesturing at the passing Kahne during Sunday's feature race.

With 80 laps remaining in the race, Patrick passed Kahne's lap-down auto, but then he made contact with her vehicle between Turns 1 and 2, sending Patrick crashing hard into the wall.

She was not injured but was pointed in her criticism of Kahne moments after being released from the infield medical center.

Defending Sprint Cup champion Kyle Busch was fined $10,000 and placed on NASCAR probation for the next four Sprint Cup points races for skipping media availability.

In the Xfinity race, won by Austin Dillon, Busch did not attend the post-race press conference.

Because his tire failure created debris on the track, Busch thought NASCAR should have displayed the caution, effectively ending the race and allowing Busch to keep the lead as he was able to maintain reasonable pace. “As much as fans would love for me to comment on this issue, I actually agree with NASCAR's decision. But in this instance, NASCAR let the transgression slide”.

Basically, Harvick is doing exactly what most thought he'd be doing, which is why there really isn't much of a reason to bet any of these drivers to win the Championship so early, or at least not much reason to bet any of the favorites right now.

NASCAR executive Steve O'Donnell told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio after California the series was "disappointed" by both Busch's comments and for failing to complete his media obligations.
