When consistently competing for every single spot possible in the mid-field of the NASCAR Cup Series field, tempers are bound to flair every now and again, especially around the 1.058-mile New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
…though, usually, the drivers at least know why they’re mad with each other.
After a caution in stage two for Kyle Busch spinning off of turn four, Austin Dillon began to – randomly — rough up Brad Keselowski under the caution period, banging into the door of the No. 6 Ford Mustang.
Keselowski, however, didn’t particularly enjoy that move by the Richard Childress Racing driver, and decided to turn right down the straightaway and slam into the door of Dillon, nearly causing the No. 3 to spin.

Both Justin Alexander and Matt McCall – crew chiefs for Dillon and Keselowski — confirmed that they have no idea why the incident happened under caution, with no real indication of any contact happening on-track.
