An intense fight broke out following Friday night’s NASCAR race.
Two drivers – Harrison Burton and Noah Gragson – got into it verbally and physically following Friday’s Alsco 300 at Kentucky Speedway. The race was part of the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
Gragson made contact with Burton with 13 laps to go in the 200-lap race on Friday night. Both drivers clipped the outside wall as a result of the collision.
The two drivers then met in the garage following the race. Things got pretty heated.

Burton spoke to FOX Sports 1 following the race.
“Just frustrated,” Burton told FS1. “That’s two times since we’ve come back after the COVID-19 pandemic on restarts. Same situation. We rallied all night to get our DEX Imaging Supra into fourth place, and then the 9 happens to start in third and — I don’t know — forgets what race track we’re at or what. But both times, puts us in the fence. Charlotte (Motor Speedway) and now here.
“I had a lot of people coming up to me afterwards saying that was a long time coming. So I guess that was a popular move.”
Gragson finished seventh in Friday night’s race, while Burton came in 12th.
NASCAR officials were able to break up the fight between the two drivers fairly quickly.
