Talladega news and more....

12 fans have been banned for life from the Talladega track for throwing stuff onto the racetrack last Sunday where Jeff Gordon picked up his 77th win of his career. More charges could come.

Kevin Harvick and Jamie McMurray who traded some paint after the final caution of the day at Sunday's race have both picked up 25 grand in fines and have been put on probation until October 3rd.

Ford Racing has up the latest on the Greg Biffle situation with Roush Fenway racing and sponsorship problems he has.

Kyle Petty has finally named John Andretti and Truck Series driver Chad McCumbee as his replacement drivers while he is doing his announcing duties for the TNT network.

NASCAR Now Notes:

Marty smith says both Kevin Harvick and Jamie McMurray are surprised of the fines they have received this week.

Marty also says that Talladega track officials are looking at all legal matters possible. They would like to even ban the fans throwing stuff at the racetrack from ever stepping on the racetrack grounds.

And you can add the Las Vegas track as well.  They will ban those same 12 drivers from the racetrack as well.
