The Big Brawl - 04/27/14

Let's face it. Episodes like last night's ending to the Sprint Cup race in Richmond  are what get people talking. Matt Kenseth and Brad Keselowski battling each other out of a first place finish, and the Marcos Ambrose-Casey Mears dust up after the race were over dominate the conversation last night and today, when it comes to NASCAR.

Joey Logano won the race with a great move to the inside past Kenseth and Keselowski in an exciting finish. Keselowski had words for Kenseth afterwards and vowed to remember it this season. Amazingly, Mears put hands on Ambrose and got punched in the face for it moments after the race. And that was in a battle for 18th place!  Just another night in short track racing, right?  We've seen Bristol send even mild-mannered drivers to blood-boiling fury in the past many times over the years.

As long as it's not too ugly a scene, we love to see the drivers mix it up after a race. To be continued ...
