Gordon docked 25 points, fined $100K for Sunday

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Four-time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon avoided suspension when NASCAR instead fined him $100,000 and docked him 25 points for intentionally wrecking Clint Bowyer at Phoenix International Raceway.

Gordon also was placed on probation through Dec. 31. But he’ll be allowed to close out the season at Homestead-Miami Speedway despite his actions in Sunday’s race, which triggered a fight in the garage area between the two drivers’ crews.

“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.”
