    Rusty Fined $10K For Newman Incident

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Rusty Wallace was fined $10,000 for his role in an incident at the conclusion of the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series race held Oct. 24 at Martinsville Speedway, NASCAR officials announced today.

    Wallace, driver of the No. 2 Dodge for Penske Racing South, was penalized for violating Section 12-4-A (Actions detrimental to stock car racing) of the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series Rule Book when he made deliberate contact with the car of Ryan Newman as the field returned to pit lane following the conclusion of the race.

    Three others were issued penalties for equipment infractions at Martinsville. Gil Martin, crew chief for the No. 31 Chevrolet of driver Robby Gordon, and co-crew chief Chris Andrews will share in a $10,000 fine for violating Section 12-4-A (Actions detrimental to stock car racing) and 12-4-W (Improperly attached weight) of the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series Rule Book.

    Mario Gosselin, driver of the No. 80 Ford, was fined $500 for violating Section 12-4-A (Actions detrimental to stock car racing) and 12-17.1B (3) for an expired manufacturer's date on his driver's head-and-neck restraint device.

    I wonder what Penske said to him about the whole thing. Newman is in the top 10 after all.

    Atlanta is not a short track, its like the 4th fastest on the circuit, or was before texas and couple others were added. It is classified as medium length.

    I believe refguy was referring to Martinsville as the short track. That's where it happened.
