$1,775: The dollar amount raised as of noon ET Thursday through a Facebook fundraising site designed to help Ryan Newman's gas man, Andy Rueger, pay the $5,000 fine he incurred for failing to obey the directive of a NASCAR official after last Saturday night's Bojangles' Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. Rueger initiated a confrontation with Kurt Busch after the Phoenix Racing driver, angry and frustrated over a late-race accident, drove through Newman's pit stall while crew members were still over the wall. The fundraising appeal - with a goal of $6,000 to cover the fine and fundraising costs - appears under the header "Help ‘Big A' pay his $5,000 NASCAR fine!!"
