  Kyle Busch bloodied in post-race fight with Joey Logano A skirmish between Kyle Busch and Joey Logano left Busch with a cut on his head following Sunday’s NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Busch and Logano made contact racing to the finish of the Kobalt 400, resulting in Busch spinning off Turn 4 and down pit road. Unhappy with what transpired Busch waited for Logano to stop on pit road then sought him out and threw a punch at Logano before being wrestled down by crewmembers for Logano’s No. 22 team. NASCAR officials quickly intervened to break the fracas up, with one official forcefully lifting Busch up and removing him from the scene.

Punishment unlikely for Logano, Busch after scuffle

  Punishment unlikely for Logano, Busch after scuffle Kyle Busch’s confrontation with Joey Logano and Logano’s crew after the Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway likely won’t lead to any sanctions, NASCAR Vice President Steve O'Donnell said an interview on Monday. O'Donnell told SiriusXM NASCAR that Sunday’s post-race scuffle that left Busch with a bloody forehead is “under review” by series officials, but so far the examination of  video footage and talks with those involved in the incident haven’t shown the need to suspend or otherwise punish those involved.
