NASCAR places Boise's Scott on probation after fight


CHARLOTTE, N.C. - NASCAR has put Brian Scott (Boise High) and Nelson Piquet Jr. on probation until June 26 after the two Nationwide drivers tangled on the track and then on pit road last Friday night in Richmond, Va.

After the track incident, Scott approached Piquet, and Piquet shoved him and kicked Scott in the groin. NASCAR also suspended two Richard Childress Racing crew members who were arrested for fighting with Piquet Jr. in a parking lot. Thomas Costello and Michael Searce were suspended for four Nationwide races and fined $15,000 each. They were placed on probation until the end of the year.
