More penalties for Kenseth and Harvick

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Matt Kenseth and Kevin Harvick were each penalized by NASCAR a second time Wednesday for bumping each other at the end of last weekend's Pocono 500.

The drivers, who previously were docked 10 finishing positions in last Sunday's race, were each fined $25,000 and placed on probation until Aug. 11, a period covering the next seven Nextel Cup races.

With Sunday's race about to end under caution, Harvick spun Kenseth into the infield. Kenseth then did the same to Harvick on the next lap.

NASCAR officials summoned Kenseth, the 2003 series champion, and Harvick to a meeting after the race, then dropped them to 20th and 21st in scoring. Kenseth originally finished 10th, and Harvick 11th.
