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.
RCR driver Clint Bowyer won the Trucks event to snap Busch's three-race
