Fans came for a NASCAR race, but got a boxing match whenever Kyle Busch (pictured) fought Joey Logano at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
The Kobalt 400, vegas’ annual NASCAR race, was considered a dreadfully boring event by racing observers. There had been few passes, and long stretches of running under green-flag conditions.
That all changed regarding the lap that is final. Martin Truex Jr. had the race won, but Logano, trying to get to the finish on a nearly empty tank, slightly lost control regarding the final corner and spun Busch off the track.
When the two exited their cars, Busch approached Logano and took a swing at the younger motorist. Pit crews wrestled the two apart, but not before blood was drawn.
‘He flat out just drove straight in the corner and wrecked me,’ Vegas native Busch said afterward. ‘That’s exactly how Joey races, so he’s gonna get it.’
Truex’s win provided a return that is big sports bettors who took the #78 vehicle. He was +1400 at online book Bovada, while the land-based casinos had him at about 8-1.
