Apr 29, 2014, 5:27 PM EDT

Marcos Ambrose and Casey Mearsgarage dust-up at Richmond, you’ve seen by now. And you’ve taken a stance, one way or another on how NASCAR should or should not drop the hammer on these two.

Turns out NASCAR has picked the “we’re going to drop the hammer on both drivers” option.

Just released Tuesday from NASCAR, both Ambrose and Mears have been placed on probation through May 28 (so after the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway). Fines differ; Ambrose has been fined $25,000 and Mears $15,000.

The specific infractions violated are Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing), and 12-4.9 (Behavioral Penalty; involved in an altercation in the garage area after the race) as outlined in the 2014 NASCAR rulebook.

    It was worth every dime for Ambrose to punch him.

    So Ambrose was fined more for self defense. Way to go NASholes. Way to stick a fist right up common senses ass.

    Makes no sense. Fine drivers when NASCAR will put that clip on every advertisement they possibly can.

    Drivers have at it!

    (Disclaimer: Whilst inside your car only. Also, must be during green flag conditions. Any other actions at any other time will result in discipline from NASCAR. ;) . )

    not quite but we get it. However if that is the case lets put Brian France and Mike Helton in the pace car and put it into the wall with Kyle Busch waving the green flag

    Who’s the chick smugglin’ watermelons in her sweater?

    I think the fines should be equal. You start pushing people around then you had better expect to get punched before you sucker punch them.

    Brain France gets ideas from Roger Goodell, both are ruining the sport they are supposed to be leading
