Not only did Jeff Gordon and Clint Bowyer trade paint during the AdvoCare 500, but they instigated a brawl in the garage area at the Phoenix International Raceway.
On the second-to-last lap, Gordon wrecked Bowyer (to retaliate for an earlier incident) and that didn't sit well with the pit crew who works hard to keep the No. 15 car on the track. After putting Bowyer into the wall, Gordon managed to steer his ride to the garage. Team Bowyer was waiting for him after he pulled off his helmet.
As the fracas expanded, Bowyer was hustling over from his car on foot to get involved. Bowyer ran.. and ran.. and ran.. and then was held back before he could join the fisticuffs.
Kevin Harvick earned the win amidst the chaotic finish to the race and had no problem with the fighting.
"The sport was made on fights. We should have more fights. I like fights," Kevin Harvick, who won the race, told reporters, via The Associated Press. "They're not always fun to be in, sometimes you're on the wrong end, but fights are what made NASCAR what it is."
