Sources say car owner Richard Childress and driver Kyle Busch were involved in a "physical confrontation" in the garage area of Kansas Speedway after the Camping World Truck Series race there Saturday night.

The altercation ensued reportedly because Busch (who finished 6th), tried to pass one of Childress' drivers, Joey Coulter (who finished 5th), after the race was already over. When Busch couldn't get around him, he "tapped" Coulter's side with his truck.
Ironically, Clint Bowyer (also for RCR), won the race, snapping Busch's win streak at three. Nascar is currently looking into the reported fight. Oh, and on a funny side note; Busch is 26, Childress is 65. Way to get whooped by an old man.
All this comes on the heels of the post race antics on May 8th after a Sprint Cup race at Darlington. On that day, after the race, Kevin Harvick (who drives for RCR), stopped at the entrance of pit lane and Busch parked right behind him. Harvick thought that Busch had intentionally wrecked him with a few laps remaining in the race. After a few minutes, Harvick climbed out of his car and walked over to Busch's window, throwing a punch. Busch then hit the gas and pushed Harvick's car out of the way and into the pit wall.

At any rate, this definitely wasn't the first time Richard Childress Racing and Kyle Busch (and/or his brother Kurt) have had run-ins. You can catch up on the history here.
UPDATE: Childress was fined $150,000 and placed on probation for the remainder of the season. No penalties for Busch.
