LONG POND, Pa. (AP) - Richard Childress agrees NASCAR was right to fine him and place him on probation for assaulting Kyle Busch. The owner just won't apologize to Busch for the incident.
Childress made a brief statement Friday at Pocono Raceway where he accepted responsibility for the incident and admitted he let his passion get the best of him. His remarks were almost identical the ones he issued earlier this week.
Childress did wish NASCAR had done something to Busch after the driver bumped into Joey Coulter on the cool-down lap after the Trucks race at Kansas Speedway.
The talk at Pocono was anything but racing. Ryan Newman did not refute a report that he was secretly fined $50,000 for allegedly punching Juan Pablo Montoya during a meeting last month at Darlington.
