CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- NASCAR fined Kevin Harvick and Jamie McMurray $25,000 each Wednesday for making contact during a caution at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday.

Both drivers were also placed on probation until Oct. 3.

NASCAR was not aware of any incidents between the drivers until they reviewed videotape of the last few laps of the race. The two drivers were apparently bumping each other under caution on the final lap.

The race went into overtime because of a late accident, and it ended under caution because of two separate wrecks during the two-lap sprint to the finish.
