Busch a bad boy again; fined $50,000 by NASCAR for pit road collision


CONCORD, N.C. – Kurt Busch was on his best behavior for the first 10 races of the season, but the emotional meltdowns that led to firings at Roush Fenway Racing and Penske Racing returned in the closing laps of last Saturday night’s race at the Darlington Raceway.

Busch was fined $50,000 Tuesday by NASCAR and placed on probation until July 25 after he sped through Ryan Newman’s pit stall at the end of the race and running into Newman’s car on pit road after the race.
