Jeff Gordon and Jeff Burton got together during a caution, and Gordon ended up in the wall. 

Okay, racing deal, right?  Well, that's not how Jeff Gordon saw it, and he wanted to make sure that Jeff Burton knew that was not his view.  While safety crews milled around, trying load the vehicles, pick up the debris, and ensure both drivers were loaded into ambulances for the mandatory ride to the Infield Care Centre, Jeff Gordon had other ideas. 

He evaded the safety crew and made his way to Jeff Burton and broke out the fists.  Afterwards, Burton said Gordon had done nothing he didn't expect, and apologized, taking full responsibility for the incident.  Burton was able to get back out and finish the race, while Gordon's junk remained in the garage.

Oh, and by the way, Denny Hamlin won the race, in case anyone cares.
