CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Four-Time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon has been fined $100,000 and docked 25 points for intentionally wrecking Clint Bowyer at Phoenix International Raceway.

Gordon was also placed on probation Monday through Dec. 31. But he avoided suspension for his actions in Sunday's race, which triggered a fight in the garage area between his crew and Bowyer's crew.

Team owner Rick Hendrick was also docked 25 car owner points, and crew chief Alan Gustafson was placed on probation through the end of the year.

Bowyer crew chief Brian Pattie was fined $25,000 and placed on probation through the end of the year.

Brad Keselowski was fined $25,000 and placed on probation for having an electronic device inside the car -- presumably the phone he used to tweet during a red flag period.
