NASCAR officials handed out a stack of fines and penalties following Sunday's race in Phoenix. Jeff Gordon suffered the brunt of that wrath with a $100,000 fine and the loss of 25 points in the Sprint Cup Championship for his involvement in a crash that doused Clint Bowyer's chances of taking a points lead. Gordon was also put on probation through the end of the year.

Following the crash, Bowyer's pit crew ran to Gordon's area of the garage where the driver was climbing from his car. One of the crew members grabbed Gordon from behind, and a brawl ensued as Gordon's pit team jumped in to defend their driver. Gordon was then escorted to his trailer.

Not wanting to be left out, Bowyer ran to the Dupont truck only to be held back by NASCAR officials. Bowyer's crew chief, Brian Pattie, was penalized $25,000, while points leader Brad Keselowski saw himself fined for $25,000 and put on probation through December 31 for having a cell phone in the vehicle with him. TV cameras spotted the phone while Keselowski sat waiting for a red flag to lift. Check the video below for another look at the brawl and the crash.
