The incident occurred at Martinsville throughout a late-model race’s heats.
Racer Andrew Grady of a NASCAR Late Model has given an explanation for why he continuously hit and attacked Davey Callihan at Martinsville.
Grady and Cailihan collided throughout a late model heat at the renowned short track; the accident went unnoticed by TV cameras, but they did catch the former throwing fists in the latter’s direction until spectators forcibly pushed him away to defuse the conflict.
“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 NASCAR Cup Series itself, which is now in Texas for the opening race weekend of the Round of 12 in the championship-deciding Playoffs, is far superior to the Series.
