CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Brad Keselowski and Jeff Gordon have avoided any penalty from NASCAR for their post-race altercation at Texas, but two crew chiefs and four crew members from Hendrick Motorsports have been punished for their roles in the brawl.

NASCAR suspended three Hendrick crew members for six races on Tuesday and fined them each $25,000. A fourth Hendrick crew member was fined $10,000 and suspended for three races.

Gordon crew chief Alan Gustafson and Kasey Kahne crew chief Kenny Francis were each fined $50,000 and placed on probation for six races.

Hendrick Motorsports said it would not appeal, and the punished team members would not face further sanctions from the organization.

The fight began when Gordon confronted Keselowski on pit road after the race.
