HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) -- NASCAR chairman Brian France says the
organization will reconsider its policy of not announcing fines it levies against drivers for critical comments about the series.

The Associated Press has reported Brad Keselowski was fined
$25,000 for comments he made last week about NASCAR's impending
move to fuel injection. France says NASCAR will not allow drivers to denigrate the series or the quality of racing.

He also said he had not seen any benefit in announcing fines for critical comments. But pressed Friday at Homestead-Miami Speedway about the fines, France relented and indicated NASCAR will consider making them public in the future.

NASCAR has issued at least four quiet fines over the last two years. Ryan Newman was fined twice, and Denny Hamlin was punished for posts on Twitter.
