Joey Logano, Kyle Busch Spar in Ugly Post-Race Fight
It’s what happened after NASCAR’s Monster Energy Cup Kobalt 400 that has people talking.
While Martin Truex Jr. won Sunday’s race, it will most likely be remember for Kyle Busch clocking Joey Logano following an incident on the final lap when Logano spun out, a move which Busch claimed was done to intentionally hit his car.
Busch made a beeline for Logano, who finished fourth, after the race, held in Las Vegas, and appeared to land a punch before they were separated.

“I got dumped,” Busch told Fox. (Logano) flat-out drove straight into the corner and wrecked me. That’s how Joey races, so he’s going to get it.”
Logano, meanwhile, says Busch is making a whole lotta something out of nothing. “I was racing hard there at the end,” he said. “He tried to pin me hard down there into the corner. I was going to spin out, so I tried to chase it up. And he was there. It was nothing intentional, but obviously he thinks that.”
