MONTOYA FINED, PLACED ON PROBATION FOR INAPPROPRIATE GESTURE

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (April 25, 2007) -- NASCAR announced today that Juan Pablo Montoya, driver of the No. 42 Dodge in the NASCAR Busch Series, has been fined $10,000 and placed on probation until Dec. 31 because of an inappropriate gesture made during a practice session this past Thursday at Phoenix International Raceway.

Montoya was in violation of Section 12-4-A (actions detrimental to stock car racing) of the NASCAR Busch Series rule book.

In addition, Todd Brewer, crew chief for the No. 25 Ford driven by David Gilliland in the NASCAR Busch Series, has been fined $2,000 after it was found the No. 25 had unapproved, hollow jacking bolts.

Brewer was in violation of Sections 12-4-A (actions detrimental to stock car racing); 12-4-Q (car, car parts, components and/or equipment used that do not conform to NASCAR rules); and 20A-12.1A(8) (unapproved jacking bolts, hollow bolts). The violation was found during opening day inspection April 18 at Phoenix International Raceway.
