Brad Keselowski has been fined by NASCAR for criticizing the sanctioning body's electronic fuel injection plan for 2012, according to The Associated Press.
The AP reported Friday that "multiple people familiar with the punishment confirmed Keselowski's fine," which is believed to be $25,000.
"We're not doing this because it's better for the teams," Keselowski said last week during an appearance at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. "I don't think we're really going to save any gas. It's a media circus, trying to make you guys happy so you write good stories. It gives them something to promote. We're always looking for something to promote, but the honest answer is it does nothing for the sport except cost the team owners money.
"Cars on the street are injected with real electronics, not a throttle body (like that used in NASCAR). So we've managed to go from 50-year-old technology to 35-year-old technology. I don't see what the big deal is."
