It’s been a difficult season for Ryan Preece and Stewart-Haas Racing, now sitting 27th in NASCAR Cup Series point standings without a single top-10 finish on the season. However, that frustration has become more and more evident in recent weeks.
Following Sunday’s HighPoint.com 400, where Ryan Preece finished 31st after a spin on the final restart, the Berlin, Connecticut-native approached the car of Corey LaJoie to deliver his displeasures to the Spire Motorsports driver.
“[expletive] [expletive] you piece of [expletive], that was [expletive] bull-[expletive] and you [expletive] know it,” said Preece.

The anger from Preece, likely comes as a result of the final incident of the event, with two laps to go, when the No. 41 Ford Mustang was turned from a 22nd-place running position.
However, this is the second week in a row that the Stewart-Haas Racing driver has had some strong words for a fellow competitor post-race. At New Hampshire, Preece had words for Michael McDowell, after an incident relegated him to a poor finish.
