NASCAR drivers Clint Bowyer and Ryan Newman got into a bizarre altercation Saturday.

Newman caused a collision during the all-star race, and Bowyer’s response was absurd. He rushed up on Newman’s vehicle and started throwing punches. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

Honestly, I had no idea NASCAR drivers had it in them. I didn’t have any idea at all they were capable of fighting.

We’re talking about a sport where people drive in circles for hours on end. It’s not exactly the NHL, the UFC or even the NFL. It’s dudes in cars.

Clearly, I underestimated some of them because Bowyer didn’t even hesitate to get into an altercation.

He also didn’t have any regrets about throwing the punches when discussing it after the fact.

I might have to give this whole NASCAR thing a shot if there are going to be drivers running around punching each other. That’s a level of excitement that you just can’t buy these days.

I really didn’t think I’d spend my Sunday writing about professional drivers fighting each other, but here we are. The sport might be a lot cooler than I initially assumed.
