BREAKING NEWS: Richard Childress Penalized By NASCAR




NASCAR Penalizes Richard Childress For Actions At Kansas Speedway
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (June 6, 2011) – NASCAR has fined owner Richard Childress $150,000 and placed him on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31 for violating Section 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing – involved in an altercation in the garage area) of the 2011 NASCAR rule book. The violation occurred following the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race June 4 at Kansas Speedway.

The probation includes all NASCAR-sanctioned events.

STATEMENT FROM NASCAR

The penalty we have announced today for Richard Childress reflects NASCAR’s response to the incident at Kansas Speedway on Saturday. We feel this action is appropriate and are confident all parties involved understand our position on this matter and will move forward appropriately.

I thought they were going to dock owner points to in the one article i read. I'm shocked that they didnt make him sit out some races.

Me too duffy. Probation means nothing to him. I think he's pretty rich so the money might not hurt too much either. Unless he appeals to get a lower fine.

Richard Childress' Response:

In a statement released Monday, Childress said, "First of all, I'm responsible for my actions, plain and simple. As you know, I am a very principled person and have a passion for what we do at Richard Childress Racing. I believe passionately in defending my race teams and my sponsor partners. In this instance, I let that passion and my emotions get the best of me. I accept the penalty NASCAR announced today and, as a company, we will now focus on this week's races at Pocono Raceway and Texas Motor Speedway."

Re: BREAKING NEWS: Richard Childress Penalized By NASCAR

I'm ok with this decision. I was glad to hear they wouldn't be suspending him. $150K is nothing for RC. So I'm sure he thinks it was well worth it. I think NASCAR could have easily found grounds to suspend him, but due to Richard's stature within the sport, gave him basically a slap on the wrists. Good move on NASCAR's part. Many people within the garage and within the stands regard Richard as one of the most respected in the sport.

you're KIDDING, right?? If Joey Coulter didn't have a problem with ANYTHING that happened, maybe RC shoulda spoken to his driver before he decided to show his ####.

According to Coulter after the race, he said he enjoyed racing Kyle and learned a lot. I guess RC didn't feel the same. The only reason RC has good stature with the Fans is that he was Dale Sr's Car owner , Boss and Friend. JMO

Richard's high status with the fans goes beyond being Dale Sr's car owner.
