Tue, 13 Nov 2012 08:51:15 -0800

Hendrick Motorsports driver Jeff Gordon was fined $100,000 and docked 25 points and put on probation for the rest of the season for intentionally crashing Michael Waltrip Racing driver Clint Bowyer in the Sprint Cup race at Phoenix International Raceway last weekend. "I take responsibility for my actions on the racetrack," Gordon said in a statement. "I accept NASCAR's decision and look forward to ending the season on a high note at Homestead." Bowyer finished in 28th place, eliminating him championship contention with only one race left. Also, owner Rick Hendrick was docked 25 owner points and crew chief Alan Gustafson was placed on probation for the rest of the season. Bowyer's crew chief, Brian Pattie, was fined $25,000 and put on probation through Dec. 31. Gordon's loss of points dropped him to 11th in the standings.
