This time, we take a road trip down memory lane to check out some of the moments in NASCAR history where emotions ran high and drivers simply couldn’t stand look at one another any longer at which point, things erupted into physical violence.

Looking back, I’m not sure if the drivers would’ve done it again or not because you’d think that they suffered a hefty fine from the man but in the heat of the moment, after putting all of that energy and effort into a race only to have the hard work stripped away from them at the end, has to blow a fuse that would make a driver go off!
