Monty gets a spanking

Juan Pablo Montoya has hit the headlines once again thanks to "an inappropriate gesture" made during practice for the recent NASCAR Busch Series race at Phoenix. NASCAR has fined him $10,000 and placed him on probation until the end of the year for giving one of his opponents the finger while he was unaware that he was being shown live on an in-car camera.

There is currently no word on the casualty figures but undoubtedly some of the red-neck NASCAR fans will have died of shock at such rudeness, unaccustomed as they are to such behaviour.

This was judged to be an action detrimental to stock car racing and so the fine was imposed.

One can only wonder what will happen if JPM gets going with one of his colourful rants at some point as some of his favourite adjectives are probably a little too colourful for the NASCAR folk.
