Hornaday Penalized For Use of Inappropriate Language During Live Radio Broadcast at Dover

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (June 10, 2004) -- NASCAR Busch Series driver Ron Hornaday was penalized with a $10,000 fine and loss of 25 NASCAR Busch Series championship driver points for the use of inappropriate language during a live radio interview at Saturday's NASCAR Busch Series race at Dover (Del.) International Speedway, NASCAR officials announced today.

Hornaday, driver of the No. 2 Chevrolet, violated Section 12-4-A of the NASCAR Busch Series Rule Book (Actions detrimental to stock car racing: Use of inappropriate language) for his comments during an interview from the live radio broadcast of Saturday's 200-lap race that was later postponed by rain after 29 laps and completed Monday.

The loss of 25 driver points adjusts Hornaday's season total to 1,718, but he still maintains eighth place in the NASCAR Busch Series championship.
