Joey Logano wins at Richmond, and then a fight breaks out

ICYMI Marcos Ambrose has a great right hook

Joey Logano won the race last night, but that win, and his celebration, was overshadowed by a "discussion" between Marcos Ambrose and Casey Mears.  I'll just let you view it for yourself.



Apparently, right after Ambrose turned away, somebody else sucker punched him.  At least Casey saw his punch coming, or at least he should have.  He grabbed Marcos, and should expect some kind of counter-action.

Jenna Fryer posted on twitter "who punches Casey Mears?" and Parker Kligerman was quick to respond that he wanted to at California.  It seems Casey isn't as invisible as TV coverage would have us think.

NASCAR had declined to comment as of last night, but said they would be reviewing all video they could obtain.  Fines/penalties on Tuesday?  It certainly seems possible.

NASCAR.com posted this pic of Mears with Marty Smith at the Jimmie Johnson Foundation 5K run this morning.  Eye is a little swollen, but nothing too serious.  NASCAR needs to butt out.

Can you imagine what would happen if the schedule was changed a la Keselowski and DW, to put all the short track weekends one after another?

"boys will be boys", let them handle it themselves. back off Nascar. You are about to make liars out of yourselves and look the fools once again. I guess though, Nascar is used to making liars and fools of themselves. Looked likea crewman from Casey's camp sucker punched Marcos.
Can't wait to see what happens next.
