Townley, Gallagher Fined For Gateway Fight

Drivers John Wes Townley and Spencer Gallagher were sanctioned by NASCAR today for their roles in an incident in Saturday night's Camping World Truck Series race at Gateway Motorsports Park. 

Townley and Gallagher were fined $15,000 and $12,500, respectively, after they tangled twice on the race track and once outside of their racers. Both were also placed on probation until Dec. 31. 

After a review of the on-track altercation and ensuing physical quarrel in the Drivin for Linemen 200, competition officials fined.  

They collided on lap 145 of the 200-lap event Saturday night, with Gallagher's Allegiant Air Chevrolet clipping Townley's Zaxby’s Chevy and sending it spinning in Turn One. Townley turned the tables 10 laps later, with both trucks making heavy contact with the outside wall. After an exchange of verbal pleasantries, a brief wrestling match ensued, with Townley landing a number of punches before they were separated by NASCAR officials.
