Jeff Gordon and Brad Keselowski got into a fight after the AAA Texas 500 on Sunday and some punches were thrown.
Gordon was not happy with Keselowski for knocking him out of the lead with less than 10 laps to go by cutting his tire after initiating some contact. Gordon was steaming after going from first to 29th and confronted Keselowski after the race.
Both Gordon and Keselowski suffered cuts to their faces in the fight. Jimmie Johnson ended up winning the race.
“The way he races, I don’t know how he ever won a championship,” Gordon said. “This is why everyone is fighting with him. There wasn’t any conversation. You can’t have a conversation with him. There’s big consequences. … To me, it’s just a bunch of crap. The kid is just doing stuff way over his head.”
“We were just racing for the win. I didn’t wreck him, and just raced him hard,” Keselowski said. “He left a hole. Everything you watch in racing, you leave a hole, you’re supposed to go for it. … I don’t want to ruin anyone’s day. I wanted to win the race and that was the opportunity.”
