NASCAR Fines Kyle Busch for Poor Behavior

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- NASCAR has fined Kurt Busch $50,000
for poor behavior during the Sprint Cup finale last weekend at
Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Busch was penalized Friday for both making an obscene gesture in his car and being verbally abusive toward a reporter. Busch had a transmission problem early in Sunday's race.

As he and his Penske Racing Dodge headed to the garage, his in-car camera caught him making an obscene gesture. While his team made repairs, Busch waited to be interviewed by an ESPN reporter, and a fan videotaped Busch being verbally abusive while waiting to go live.

That video was posted on YouTube, and both Penske officials and
Busch have apologized for his behavior.
