Ricky Stenhouse Jr., the JTG Daugherty Racing driver, found himself in a unique predicament after a heated altercation with Kyle Busch during the All-Star Race at North Wilkesboro Speedway. Following the on-track incident, NASCAR slapped Stenhouse Jr. with a historic $75,000 penalty—the largest fine ever in the sport’s history. But how would he pay such a hefty sum?

During JTG Daugherty Racing’s fan day, Bob Pockrass, a NASCAR insider, proposed an unconventional solution: auction off his shorts to cover the fine! Stenhouse Jr.’s response was both humorous and practical: “Man, that was my first day wearing those shorts. If you’re thinking to raise money, I would do that. If we got to 150 maybe we’d do it again. I don’t know”.

NASCAR officials wasted no time in responding. Stenhouse was fined a staggering $75,000 for his punch, setting a new record for fines in the sport’s history. But that wasn’t all—two crew members from Stenhouse’s No. 47 team faced suspensions. Mechanic Clint Myrick received an eight-race suspension, while tuner Keith Matthews was handed a four-race suspension.

In an interview on NASCAR Race Hub, Stenhouse expressed his bewilderment: “I’m confused.” The severity of the penalty caught him off guard, and he grappled with the consequences of his actions. While Stenhouse acknowledged the need for accountability, the magnitude of the fine left him scratching his head.
