DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- NASCAR has placed Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards on probation for the next six races in the Sprint Cup
Series. The penalties are a result of their on-track incident last
Saturday at the conclusion of the race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

During the cooldown lap after Edwards' Ford took the checkered
flag for Roush Fenway Racing, Busch drove alongside Edwards and
bumped his car. Edwards responded by driving the nose of his car
into the right side of Busch's Toyota, spinning him out. The probation begins with this weekend's event at Auto Club Speedway.
