Ryan Newman, met with members of the media at Pocono Raceway and discussed fines in NASCAR, a Team Chevy transcript in part:
DID YOU GET A FINE FROM NASCAR FOR SOMETHING IN THE HAULER WITH JUAN PABLO MONTOYA?
"I've always said that private things happen privately and what happens in the trailer stays in the trailer and there is a reason that we have private meetings and there is a reason that NASCAR does things the way they do."
DO YOU THINK THAT IT SHOULD MATTER TO NASCAR WHETHER IT GIVES A FINE PRIVATELY OR PUBLICALLY AS TO WHETHER ANOTHER COMPETITOR HAS THREATENED LEGAL ACTION?
"I don't know anything about the legal action part of things. I do know that when we are talking about fines, whether it is private or public, there is nothing really we should elaborate on because it is not something that our sport should be proud of or should elaborate. To me, it is something for you guys to write, but it is not something that is good for our sport so it's not something we want to keep talking about first of all. In every other sport, to my knowledge, out there has it, whether it's golf, basketball, football, whatever. I don't know how they handle it, whether it is publically, privately or both, but, I'll just say that it is a negative aspect of our sport and we should all be talking about the positive things."
