DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Tony Stewart and Kurt Busch have been
ordered to steer clear of each other in hopes of preventing a
repeat of their high-octane confrontation during yesterday's
opening day of Speedweeks.
NASCAR officials summoned Stewart and Busch for a follow-up
meeting a day after the two drivers tangled on the track -- and
possibly in the NASCAR officials' trailer afterward. The entire
garage was buzzing over Stewart allegedly punching Busch, a claim
no one will confirm or deny.
NASCAR spokesman Jim Hunter says officials have not decided
whether to penalize either driver, but delivered a stern warning.
Busch and Stewart are former series champions with a history of
clashing on the track. They crashed during the final practice
session last night.
