NASCAR drivers brawled in the pit lane Saturday after a number of feisty incidents on the track, throwing the sport into the headlines for all the wrong reasons once more.
Kevin Harvick was celebrating his victory in the Sprint Cup in Concord, North Carolina, but all the attention was quickly diverted elsewhere as running battles erupted.
As NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski was walking between two haulers in the infield after the race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Saturday night, he was attacked by fellow driver Matt Kenseth.
Kenseth says he was angry at Keselowski for wrecking him and for his actions immediately after the race. Keselowski ran into the back of Kenseth (and also struck Tony Stewart) on pit road after the race. Keselowski also had a skirmish with Kenseth’s teammate Denny Hamlin.
