CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick were fined $25,000 apiece and put on probation yesterday by NASCAR for their actions on pit road at Darlington Raceway. The probation for all NASCAR-sanctioned events runs through June 15, a span that includes four Sprint Cup Series championship races and the non-points $1 million All-Star event. Busch and Harvick's on-and-off feuding resumed Saturday night after contact Busch had with Harvick led to Harvick's wreck with Clint Bowyer.

AS THE Sprint Cup series pauses for its midsummer break, a few thoughts are in order: * Six drivers have won 14 of the season's first 19 races. I don't know whether this is good for the series or not. Multiple-race winners proves these drivers and teams have their acts together and will be serious contenders in the Chase. But more winners, such as first-timer Aric Almirola at Daytona this month, are good for the series. With race wins basically determining the 16-driver field for the Chase, there are 11 winners so far. Non-winners such as Matt Kenseth, Ryan Newman and Tony Stewart are likely to win before the Chase begins Sept.

DOVER, Del. - Kyle Busch's quest for a Dover weekend racing sweep ended on lap 125 yesterday when contact with Clint Bowyer's car sent Busch's car into the Turn 1 wall. Busch, the second fastest qualifier for yesterday's 400-lap race, led the first 81 laps. He was running third when the incident occurred. Under the caution flag an angry Busch appeared to be pursuing Bowyer - probably to retaliate - before crew chief Dave Rogers convinced him to back off. "Be smart here Kyle," he said.

JIMMIE JOHNSON and Martinsville Speedway go together like pumpkins and Halloween, or autumn and fallen leaves. Johnson has the most wins (eight) among active Sprint Cup series drivers at Martinsville. He has won seven of the last 14 races at the historic south-central Virginia track. The five-time Cup champion dominated this year's spring race at the paper-clip-shaped short track, leading 346 of the 500 laps, including the last 138.

NASCAR is frequently criticized for apparent nit-picking when its inspectors find a race car's part that is off by the thickness of a newspaper page. However, when NASCAR investigated what happened at Richmond Saturday night in the final race before the Chase begins, the sanctioning organization did the right things. Almost. With its integrity at stake, NASCAR fined Michael Waltrip Racing $300,000 for manipulating the race outcome. It's the largest fine in NASCAR history. Martin Truex Jr., an MWR driver who benefited from teammate Clint Bowyer's caution-causing spin with seven laps remaining, was booted from the Chase after being docked 50 points.

AUTO RACING Ryan Newman is replacing Martin Truex Jr. in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship as part of NASCAR'S penalties against Michael Waltrip Racing for manipulating the outcome of Saturday night's race in Richmond, Va. Michael Waltrip Racing was fined $300,000, and general manager Ty Norris was suspended indefinitely Monday night. Truex, Clint Bowyer , and Brian Vickers were docked 50 points each, but Bowyer's deduction does not affect his position in the Chase, which begins Sunday in Chicago.

THREE RACES to go before the Daring Dozen field is set for the Chase, and surely a handful of drivers still hoping to qualify for the 10-race tournament are experiencing angst. Right now, Kasey Kahne (11th in points, two wins) and Martin Truex Jr. (12th, one win) hold the two wild cards. Of the drivers 13th through 17th, only Joey Logano (13th) and Ryan Newman (15th) have wins, one apiece. Jeff Gordon is 14th, Jamie McMurray 16th and Paul Menard 17th. Tony Stewart, 18th in points with one win, is out of contention since his broken leg will sideline him for the season.

MATT KENSETH has raced long enough to know that rough starts can still have good outcomes. Especially when his crew chief takes chances. Case in point was Kenseth's fuel-only pit stop gamble that helped him beat Jimmie Johnson late to win the rescheduled 400-mile NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race yesterday at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta. A race that was Johnson's to lose ultimately became Kenseth's series-high fourth victory of the season - and third on a 1.5-mile track - after crew chief Jason Ratcliff passed on putting new tires on the No. 20 Toyota following the race's ninth caution.

SPARTA, Ky. - Matt Kenseth's fuel-only pit-road gamble helped him beat Jimmie Johnson and win Sunday's rescheduled NASCAR Sprint Cup race, the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway. A race that was Johnson's to lose ultimately became Kenseth's series-high fourth victory of the season even though he passed on getting new tires after the race's ninth caution. He widened his lead after a wild four-wide restart on Lap 246 in which Johnson's No. 48 Chevrolet spun from second place on a dominant day when he led three times for 182 of 267 laps.
