The $10K push

Tony Stewart has been fined $10,000 for his actions at a USAC midget race at O’Reilly Raceway Park last week. Those "actions" included knocking an officials' radio to the ground and pushing another USAC employee. See the video. In addition to the fine, Tony Stewart Racing has been placed on probation for the rest of the 2008 USAC season.

The "push heard 'round Indy" happened when Smoke's driver, Tracy Hines, pitted for a tire change, but his car was deemed not ready to re-enter the race of the restart. This angered Stewart. Greatly.
