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.

    Your headline says Kyle, but the article is about Kurt.

    Frankly, I'm sick and tired of the ongoing problems and disgusting behavior of both Bush brothers. They are a disgrace, and not worthy of the honor of being in Nascar. These 2 jerks(other descriptions, of your choice. better fitting of these 2)certainly, by far,don't deserve the honor. Nascar doesn't need them, and they can be replaced.
