CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR officials won't say whether Ryan Newman secretly was fined $50,000 for allegedly punching Juan Pablo Montoya during a meeting last month at Darlington.
NASCAR officials said the May 6 meeting to discuss an ongoing feud ``did not go as well as we had hoped it would.'' They never announced any fines, however, and said the issue was closed.
But rumors of the penalty began to leak on Monday in response to NASCAR fining owner Richard Childress $150,000 for attacking Kyle Busch after Saturday's trucks race at Kansas Speedway.
NASCAR spokesman Kerry Tharp tells The Associated Press that anything that occurs inside the NASCAR hauler is private. Tharp would not comment about a possible fine.
Newman also declined to comment.
