I see in the last practice got alittle wild:

The second (and final) practice for the Bud Shootout is over and didn't suffer for a lack of excitement. #41-Sorenson was the fastest with a speed of 191.873mph. He was followed by #48-Johnson, #5-Mears, #9-Kahne, and #21-Elliott. A big wreck took place just minutes into the session when #07-Bowyer and #12-Newman made contact at the end of the backstretch. #12-Newman, #48-Johnson, #24-Gordon, #38-Gilliland, and #21-Elliott suffered the greatest amount of damage. Newman, Johnson, Gordon, & Elliott will all go to backup cars. #99-Edwards and #8-Martin spun after making contact but only suffered minor damage. A second incident happened midway through the session when #20-Stewart squeezed up beside #2-Busch on the backstretch. Busch caught the front of Stewart's car and was knocked up into the wall. Stewart came down the track and made minor contact with teammate #11-Hamlin. Busch then bumped Stewart's car as they were both headed back to pit road. Busch and Stewart were both called to the NASCAR trailer after the incident and will have to go back again Saturday morning. Busch will go to a backup car as well.(2-8-2008)

Sounds like it and here is more about Kurt and Tony:

NASCAR chairman Brian France kicked off the 2008 media tour in Charlotte, N.C., last month by saying Sprint Cup drivers needed to show more of their personalities. #2-Kurt Busch and #20-Tony Stewart obliged on Friday night when they got into a sheet metal exchange on pit road after an on-the-track incident that wrecked both of their cars in the final practice for Saturday's Budweiser Shootout at Daytona International Speedway. Both drivers immediately were summoned to the NASCAR hauler to meet with Series director John Darby and competition director Robin Pemberton. They will meet again on Saturday before the governing body determines what fines, if any, will be issued. The only words spoken by either driver -- both left through a side door without commenting -- came from Busch before entering the hauler. "It's a great way to start off 2008," he said, clapping his hands together

Correct me if I'm wrong, but NASCAR usually doesn't hand fines down when things happen in non-points events?
