Another secret fine for Ryan Newman?

Is this possible? Did NASCAR impose a $50,000 fine against Ryan Newman for purportedly hitting Juan Pablo Montoya a few weeks back?

If what I heard today is true, the jury is no longer out on this issue as the above story implies. In fact, if this is true, NASCAR has crossed the line. If this is true, I am outraged.

NASCAR should have learned its lesson about keeping secrets from fans that have made the sport what it is; fans that support it. Fans were furious when NASCAR imposed secret fines against Denny Hamlin and Ryan Newman. The two were fined for speaking their minds.

Whether there has been a secret fine or this is an ugly rumor, I stand behind a previous post on chontrack entitled, NASCAR, media should stick to racing not driver behavior
