NASCAR Late model driver Andrew Grady has explained why he repeatedly punched and attacked fellow driver Davey Callihan in an incident at Martinsville.
During a heat for a late model at the famed short track, Grady and Cailihan came together in an incident unseen by TV cameras - but they did capture the former throwing punches in the latter's direction before bystanders physically moved him away to ease the situation.
"He flipped me off, so I started Mike Tyson-ing his head," Grady explained of his actions sometime later.
"At the end of the day, we were really, really good, the car was really fast, but you get these dumbasses and they have no business running a late model, much less a lawn mower.
"He wasn't close, he divebombed me, and wrecked Brandon Pearce in the process and I wanted to talk to him, but he flipped me off, so I started Mike Tyson-ing his head.
"You are in a grown ass sport, and if you wreck a man, you can take a grown man ass-whipping, that's how I see it."
The Series is well below the NASCAR Cup Series itself, who are currently in Texas for the first race weekend of the Round of 12 in the championship-deciding Playoffs.
