Watch Two NASCAR Drivers Duke it Out After a Rough Race
NASCAR races have often have their fair share of drama out on the track with drivers losing their cool, but what you don't usually see is that drama spilling over after the race when the engines are off. Saturday night at the Charlotte Motor Speedway following the Bank of America 500, that's exactly what happened with driver Matt Kenseth coming after Brad Keselowski after a series of issues between the two during the race. It all started on a restart with 63 laps to go when Kenseth tried to pass, was squeezed into the wall, and bounced off it into Keselowski, damaging both cars. The disagreement continued with 6 laps to go with Kenseth damaging the nose of Keselowski's car. The drama then turned to Keselowski and driver Denny Hamlin in lap 2 as Keselowski pushed Hamlin in Turn 1. RELATED: See the 2013 Ford Fusion NASCAR Sprint Cup
The drivers were so incensed that, once the race was over, things got out of hand in pit row with the bad behavior resulting in damage to both Tony Stewart and Danica Patrick's cars when they had nothing to do with anything. Despite all the vehicle damage, what seemed to throw Kenseth over the edge was what he considered outright dangerous behavior.
As Keselowski drove to pit road he chased after Kenseth, sideswiping his car at a time when Kenseth had unbuckled his safety belts. This was the tipping point and set him chasing after Keselowski and attacking him from behind in between two haulers. That pretty much cleared the bench with crew members jumping in when Kenseth put Keselowski in a headlock.
