Kyle Busch was having a solid day at his home track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and looked poised for a top five finish. That is until this happened:

Logano and Busch breezed by Brad Keselowski, who was having trouble with his car late in the race. Kyle pushed Joey down the line to make the pass on the No. 2, but Logano wasn’t going to back down so easily. That’s when he got into Busch and sent the No. 18 spinning. What was a promising day for Kyle and his team, turned sour in the blink of an eye. Busch’s Toyota limped across the finish line for a 22nd-place finish.

The fiery, short-fused driver was not pleased with Logano and felt it was necessary to pay him a visit on pit road. Tempers flared, and before long, this broke out:

The brawl left Busch bloodied, and very very angry, to say the least. He had this to say after everything settled down:

I think it’s safe to say that this isn’t the last time these two will tussle. The Logano-Busch feud is something we will be keeping our eyes on heading into Phoenix next weekend. And, knowing Busch’s temper, probably the rest of the season.
