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."
