“I take responsibility for my actions on the race track,” Gordon said. “I accept NASCAR’s decision and look forward to ending the season on a high note at Homestead.”

In addition to Gordon’s penalties, Crew Chief, Alan Gustafson was also put on probation through December.  Team Owner, Rick Hendrick had 25 owner points deducted.

“I’ve always respected Jeff for standing his ground,” Hendrick said. “We also respect that NASCAR needs to police the sport and send a message when situations like this occur. It’s been a great year, and we’re going to put our focus on finishing in a positive way this weekend.”

It’s not the biggest fine in NASCAR history.  The governing body has imposed $100,000 fines 12 other times.  The steepest fine ever occurred in May of 2009.  Carl Long was spanked 200 grand for having an engine that was .17 cubic inches too big.  Richard Childress was hit with a $150,000 fine in June of 2011 after punching Kyle Busch following a truck race.
