MOORESVILLE, N.C. - Ryan Gifford said Wednesday that his fine has been paid, lifting his NASCAR suspension.

NASCAR suspended Gifford on Tuesday until he paid a $1,000 fine for an altercation with a competitor after last weekend’s K&N Pro Series East race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

With the fine paid, Gifford will compete in Saturday night’s K&N Pro Series East at Columbus (Ohio) Motor Speedway. Gifford remains on probation until Dec. 31.

Gifford declined to talk about what he did on pit road to incur the fine and why he was upset.

“I’m kind of over it, and I’m sure he is, too,’’ Gifford said.

Gifford said this has shown how one act can overshadow other things he’s done.

“I feel like there’s a way to prove your point,’’ he said at a NASCAR Next event at GoPro Motorplex. “Maybe it wasn’t the best one. At the time I felt it was the right one. I think that as we move on, we learn from it.’’
