With it being the final race before the Cup Series Championship, and a number of drivers still looking to punch their ticket to the final, we knew it was gonna be crazy.
We didn’t know it was gonna be this crazy…
Denny Hamlin was throwing double birds after ramming Alex Bowman at the finish line, Brad Keselowski was trying to drive through the back of Kyle Busch coming out of the final turn… Truex Jr. was trying to hang on to a playoff spot… it was chaotic short track racing at its finest.
We already covered the scene of the of the Hamlin/Bowman beef (full story here), but perhaps even more explosive was the post race message Kyle Busch had for Brad Keselowski.
Brad slammed into the back of Kyle’s #18 car after the final turn, and since there was no chance of him (or Kyle) making it into the Championship round at that point, Rowdy was pissed.
And he went OFF.
“He drills my ass coming out of 4 for no reason… where was he going? What was he going to do? Spin me out? He was trying to do a Harvick is what he was trying to do.
For what? For second place? To do what? He wasn’t going to transfer through with that. It’s freaking retarded. So stupid.
I should beat the shit out of him right now is what I should do. But that doesn’t do me any good either.”
With Busch and Keselowski needing the win to earn a championship spot, it looked like #AlexBowman was a sitting duck on the final restart. Fortunately for the No. 48, Bowman was able to launch off the line and pull away for his first #Martinsville win!#NASCARpic.twitter.com/CdVTkZfk1R
