Rich Bickle is a fiery guy, and he took exception to being crashed out on the white flag lap of the Last Chance Qualifier for Sunday’s Snowball Derby.
After climbing from his car, Bickle unleashed on Harrison Burton.
Thompson Photography took amazing video of the aftermath and posted it to their twitter account. (video is below, but watch out the language is not safe for work).

Man, Bickle let Burton have it — there’s just one problem, Burton was an innocent victim of the crash just like Bickle. It was actually Carson Hocevar who triggered the crash by getting into the back of Bickle and spinning him into Burton.
Bickle would later apologize to the Burton family for his errant frustrations.
The Wisconsin native had 85 NASCAR Cup Series starts from 1989 to 2003, and holds the record for most Snowball Derby victories with five.
