USAToday – …the biggest post-race driver confrontation of the season to date occurred at Richmond International Raceway on Saturday night between two drivers – Marcos Ambrose and Casey Mears – who finished 18th and 19th.
Ambrose and Mears were involved in a tense conversation a few minutes after the Toyota Owners 400 when Mears shoved Ambrose and Ambrose responded by punching Mears in the face. Crew members quickly broke up the tussle after Ambrose’s swing.
Without even watching the race (because NASCAR is about as entertaining as a WNBA game) I’m gonna side with Ambrose on this one. Road rage is a daily occurrence here in Florida where the road is littered with 60+ year old speed racers who average a frightening top speed of 35 mph, so I’d imagine that driving in circles for 400 miles is enough to get someone pretty pissed off. Solid punch by the Aussie. Enjoy the shiner Mears.
