Video: “Next Time You Touch My Racecar” Kyle Weatherman Takes Post-Race Shove After on-Track Incident with Yeley

Kyle Weatherman endured a post-race shove from Jason Miller, who serves as the crew chief for JJ Yeley and the No. 14 team in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, following Saturday night’s RAPTOR King of Tough 250 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

After shoving Weatherman up against his car, Miller is seen being pulled away from Weatherman, and then Miller exclaims, “Next time you touch my racecar!”

The social team for Weatherman’s primary sponsor DriveSmart captured the post-race scuffle on video.

Miller took exception to a Lap 59 incident between Weatherman and Yeley, where Yeley was tapped from behind by Weatherman while navigating through the draft. The tap sent Yeley spinning from the pack.

After the incident, Jonathan Fjeld of The Racing Experts reports that a voice came over Yeley’s team radio and asked what pit stall the No. 91 DGM Racing team was pitting in. The voice then stated, “He better have some pants on after this race, because I’m going to come find him.”

Presumably, that voice would have been Miller, who did in fact seek out Weatherman after the race.

After DriveSmart dropped the video on YouTube, Weatherman poked fun at the situation on X, as he related the incident to a scene from the Will Ferrel movie Step Brothers.

Weatherman would finish Saturday night’s race one lap off the pace in 17th, while Yeley would come home 24th, two laps down.

  2. Ruh Roh. I would imagine that NASCAR will not take too kindly a crew chief from one team putting their hands on another teams driver.

    1. When NASCAR was NASCAR it wouldn’t make a bit of difference. Let’m fight. This is a contact sport.
      But in today’s nascar (lowercase intended and deserved) they may send the fellow to prison for 10 yrs…
      This is no longer a sport. It’s a show of shiny vehicles with (mostly) boys behind the wheel.
      All the same cars with different colors and names and numbers.
      It’s no good anymore. And…no more smoking…(at the WINSTON 500) …it’s a embarrassment.
      Bobby won races big time and he built his cars in a 3 car garage by his pond in Hueytown, Alabama. Neil was a pipe fitter while getting started in NASCAR.
      And all the guys did this… …THEN MONEY CAME IN AND FUN WENT OUT.

  3. Kyle Petty once quipped “NASCAR racing has become homogenized. Buck Baker described old time NASCAR “as drivers who, as Baker puts it, “would race for 30 minutes and then fight for 30 minutes.”
