Team owner Richard Childress and Kyle Busch were involved in an altercation after Saturday's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Kansas Speedway.

Busch and RCR driver Joey Coulter were racing hard in the closing laps of Saturday's race won by Clint Bowyer. The duo made contact several times while racing to the finish line as well as after the checkered flag on the cool down lap.

That reportedly upset Childress enough that he approached Busch in the garage area and after removing his jewelry landed at least one punch before being separated by NASCAR officials.

Following the race Coulter did not indicate there were any problems racing with Busch for the fifth place finish.

“I learned a ton behind (Busch) and I know why those guys keep saying what they do. That was really awesome racing him,” Coulter said. “I hate we got together on the last lap. I had never gotten tight next to somebody, so I was underneath him expecting to get loose, and I get tight and we kind of got together.”

Neither Busch or Childress and their respective teams had comment following the incident.

NASCAR officials said they were investigating.

NASCAR is such horseshit now. Too much drama, just to keep the fans interested. Kyle Busch is one of the biggest babies/douchebags to walk the face of the earth.
