We got a SCENE at Martinsville.
During yesterday’s qualifying races for the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 at Martinsville Speedway, one of the biggest late model races of the year, driver Andrew Grady went OFF on fellow driver Davey Callihan.
Following an accident in Heat 1, Grady approached Callihan while he was still in the vehicle, and he claims that he was just going to talk to him until he was flipped off.
When he got the bird, that’s when he decided to go “Mike Tyson” on him:
Granted, the man had a helmet on, but the way he was throwing punches through the window, that looked more like a road rage incident on the interstate than a NASCAR fight.
He had to be physically lifted off the ground and carried away from the car.
And the explanation… downright hilarious:
“He flipped me off so I started Mikes Tysoning his head… you get these dumbasses that come in here and run with us, and they have no business running a late mode;, much less a lawn mower.
He wasn’t close, he dive-bombed me, he hooked me, and he wrecked Brandon Pearson in the process. And I wanted to talk to him and he flipped me off so I started Mike Tysoning his head.
I mean, you’re in big boy sport, when you wreck a man, you can take a grown man ass whooping… that’s how I feel.”
Callihan didn’t see it the same way and even disputed the claim that he flipped anybody off:
The ValleyStar Credit Union 300 is a NASCAR Roots race, a group of regional stock car racing divisions and race tracks running on a weekly basis sanctioned by NASCAR.
