Viral Driver Fight Ensues After Photo Finish in NASCAR Truck Race
While many NASCAR race fans had their sights set on Darlington, S.C. for the annual Bojangles Southern 500 ‘throwback’ race in the premier Sprint Cup series, tempers flared to the north in Canada.
On the final lap of the Truck Series race at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park near Toronto, driver John Hunter Nemechek, in the number 8, came whipping around the final turn and pushed the double-zero of Cole Custer onto the grass.
Nemechek and Custer continued to race for the finish line, with Custer pinned next to the wall by Nemechek.
After a photo finish, as Nemechek walked over to claim the checkered flag, Custer ran across the apron and tackled Nemechek.
A short fight ensued until the two were broken up by officials.
Nemechek, son of stock car veteran Joe Nemechek, was eventually declared the official winner.
