NASCAR just announced that the helmet racer Robby Gordon threw at Michael Waltrip's car last weekend — apparently Waltrip crashed his car or something — will be auctioned off to benefit victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Someone gets fined for something they did by their league, and it's spun forward by saying, hey, it was all for Katrina research.
