Kyle Busch brawls with Joey Logano after race

Kyle Busch brawls with Joey Logano after race

"We talked to some folks post-race as well".

The 1.5-mile track was slick with the temperature in the 80s in the desert.

Martin Truex Jr made the most of Brad Keselowski's mechanical problems.

Logano finished fourth in the Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Sunday afternoon.

On the final lap, the two were battling on the backstretch when Busch dove down to get around a slowing Keselowski.

Busch, not happy with the result, walked to Logano's space on pit road following of the race and confronted the driver of the No. 22 vehicle with a punch.

Busch finished in 22nd place. Below are a few more videos, including the one from the live NASCAR broadcast as well as some of the interviews that took place concerning the fight. That caused Logano's Ford Fusion to slide into Busch's Toyota Camry, spinning his auto into the pit lane.

Logano was restrained and pulled away from the pile as Busch got swarmed by Logano's crew members and dragged to the ground. One of the Pennzoil fellows hovering over the melee appeared to deliver a stomp to someone in the pile.

Busch, with blood dripping from his forehead, spoke to a network reporter.

"He just flat out drove straight in the corner and wrecked me. He's gonna get it". Logano, seemingly calm and unscathed, said he was just racing hard. Logano hit the apron and moved up into Busch, spinning him out and costing him valuable points. Truck Series driver Cole Custer also escaped penalty after he tackled another driver following a race last season.

The brawl is under review by NASCAR officials but NASCAR Vice President Steve O'Donnell said on Monday that it likely won't lead to any sanctions, according to USA Today. Once he found the Team Penske driver, NASCAR at Las Vegas turned into WWE at Las Vegas. He's up to sixth in the standings and has two top-10s in three races.
