As the NASCAR All-Star race was concluding, two drivers were not pleased with one another. Lenovo-sponsored driver Kyle Busch and Kroger Health/Icy Hot-sponsored driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. began to talk about their performance at North Wilkesboro Speedway in North Wilkesboro, North Carolina.

The two drivers had an incident on the track. Then, as fireworks were going off in the background, Stenhouse Jr. and Busch began to talk.

Busch appeared to say something to Stenhouse Jr., which led to him throwing a punch. Then, it was an all-out brawl between the two teams.

At the end of the fight, Busch says to Stenhouse Jr., “I suck just like you, let’s go.”

Apparently, the fight stems from an incident that happened on the first lap.

“It’s the first lap of the race and we don’t even have water temp in the car yet and we’re wrecking each other,” Busch said in an interview with Bob Pockrass. “I’m tired of getting run over by everyone. But that’s what everyone does.”

Busch has just two Top 5 finishes on the season. He finished 3rd at Atlanta in the Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen entry and fourth at Dover after starting on the pole in the FICO entry.

The 39-year-old Busch finished 27th at Darlington in their last official race in the Zone entry.

He is looking to end a winless streak that dates back to last season when he had three wins. Busch has 63 NASCAR Cup Series wins overall.

The 36-year-old Stenhouse Jr. finished 23rd in the Oscar Mayer/Artesano Bread entry at Darlington. He has struggled for much of the season with just two top-10 finishes.

He also had a sixth-place finish at Atlanta in the Kroger/Blue Buffalo entry.
