STEVE POST, Public Relations Representative --28-- Havoline Racing

"There are a lot of reports as to an incident that happened in the garage area following tonight's race. An employee of Robert Yates Racing and Ricky Rudd got into a heated discussion, apparently about some comments Ricky had made earlier in the week. After a brief heated discussion, a punch was thrown and a water bottle was thrown in return. The two people were separated and both have left the speedway property at this stage now. We want to stress that there is some incorrect information that this was a fan. This was not a fan, it was an employee of Yates Racing. At this stage, this is an internal problem that will be dealt with by Robert Yates Racing."

CAN YOU IDENTIFY THE CREW MEMBER? "Yates Racing has asked that I not do that."

WHO THREW THE PUNCH AND WHO THREW THE WATER BOTTLE? "The punch was thrown in the direction of Ricky Rudd and the water bottle was thrown in the direction of the crew member."
