The Kurt Busch of old made an appearance at Richmond International Raceway Saturday night. The former champion known for his short temper, led for a time and looked to be in a position to contend for the win. A late race caution however derailed his hopes and led to some extracurricular activity both on and off the track.

The race ended with a green-white-caution finish with Busch lined up inside the top ten. In the melee that ensued when the final green flag dropped, Matt Kenseth shoved Busch out of the racing groove. This came just after Busch had made contact with the Chevy of Tony Stewart shoving him up out of the way.

On the cool down lap, things were anything but cool. Busch sped up to Kenseth’s Toyota and gave it a hard tap shortly after receiving the same from Kenseth. Stewart showed up on the scene shortly after and pushed Busch’s Chevy into the wall. Busch retaliated and the two cars kept making contact until they got to pit road. MORE>>>
