Late in Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Phoenix Raceway, Dillon Bassett was looking at a potential top-10 finish. Then, while battling for position, Brandon Brown got loose under Bassett’s No. 90 machine.
Brown made contact and the two went into the wall.

Brown would go on to salvage a 12th-place finish, meanwhile Bassett would struggle to an 18th-place finish.
After the race, as Brown pulled into pit lane with his No. 68 car, Bassett and his brother Ronnie Bassett threw down fisticuffs with Brown.
