An intense fight broke out following Friday night’s NASCAR race.
Drivers Harrison Burton and Noah Gragson first got into a verbal altercation before they both started getting physical following Friday’s Alsco 300 at Kentucky Speedway. The race was part of the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
It all came about after Gragson made contact with Burton with 13 laps to go in the 200-lap race, with both drivers clipping the outside wall as a result.
“Just frustrated,” Burton told FS1. “That’s two times since we’ve come back after the COVID-19 pandemic on restarts. Same situation. We rallied all night to get our DEX Imaging Supra into fourth place, and then the 9 happens to start in third and — I don’t know — forgets what race track we’re at or what. But both times, puts us in the fence. Charlotte (Motor Speedway) and now here.
“I had a lot of people coming up to me afterwards saying that was a long time coming. So I guess that was a popular move.”
Gragson finished 7th, while Burton came in 12th.
