NASCAR Richard Childress Punches Kyle Busch Kansas Speedway 6.4.11
Kyle Busch and 65-year-old car owner Richard Childress were involved in a
physical confrontation after Saturday's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series
race at Kansas Speedway.
NASCAR spokesman Kerry Tharp confirmed they are looking into it.
Childress approached Busch and struck him with his fist in the garage area
after the race, according to the Charlotte Observer.
The fight was broken up and insults were exchanged before Childress put
Busch in a headlock and hit him again, the newspaper said.
Busch finished sixth, a spot behind Richard Childress Racing driver Joey
Coulter after the two had a spirited late battle for position. Busch drove
up beside Coulter's truck following the race and tapped it.
When asked what happened between the two, Coulter joked that, according to
the spotters, Busch was just congratulating him.
Bill Janitz, a spokesman for Busch, told The Associated Press in an email
that "there won't be any comment tonight." A phone message left for Richard
Childress Racing seeking comment was not immediately returned.

1992 was Davey Allison's best season in Winston Cup racing. And yet, it was
also a very painful and heartwrenching season. Davey started sixth in the
1992 Daytona 500 but was probably not quite as fast as the Junior Johnson
teammates of Bill Elliott and Sterling Marlin. But the race would change
dramatically on lap 92 when Elliott, Marlin, and Ernie Irvan triggered a
multi-car crash at the front of the pack. Fourteen cars were eliminated,
but Allison—and eventual runner-up Morgan Shepherd—somehow made it
through the mess. He would lead 127 laps to join his father as a Daytona
