IRL fines teams $25,000 Each For Watkins Glen Fracas

The Indy Racing League has fined Tony Kanaan and Sam Hornish Junior unspecified amounts and placed the drivers on probation for the rest of the year for their roles in a fight at Watkins Glen last Sunday.

Kanaan's team, Andretti Green Racing, and Hornish's team, Team
Penske, have been fined 25-thousand dollars each for unsportsmanlike conduct on pit road as the cars returned after the checkered flag. The teams are also on probation until December 31st.

The altercation at the Watkins Glen Grand Prix broke out when the drivers exited their cars. Hornish's father pushed Kanaan, then was knocked to the ground by members of Kanaan's crew.
