During a race at a NASCAR minor event at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia, two drivers got into an altercation after an accident.
Driver Andrew Grady was seen throwing wild punches through opponent Davey Callihan’s window after both drivers pulled into the infield.
Grady managed to rip the window screen off Callihan’s car and threw haymaker after haymaker at him in the head.
After driving on, Grady was picked up by a passerby and dragged away, and silence reigned.

After the altercation, Grady recalled the events and said Callihan blanked him when he went over to discuss what had happened.
“He blew my mind! So I started tapping Mike Tyson’s head,” Grady said before continuing with a shrug. “At the end of the day we were really, really good. car ran fast. But man… you get these fools coming in here and running with us and they ain’t got nothing to do with running a late model (car) let alone a lawn mower.
“I mean… he wasn’t around, he bombed me, he hooked me… and I wanted to talk to him, and he blanked me. So I started turning Mike Tyson’s head. You’re in a big boy sport. If you ruin a man, you can make a grown man flog, that’s how I feel about it.
Grady says when he confronted Callihan, the latter knocked him out, which started the fighting
In response, Callihan says he didn’t upset him and is open to talking to him.
“It was for a transfer post in Martinsville. From my perspective, I was there. It was close. But you can’t give duty for transfer place if there are 95 cars and I had to take it. It was just a tough race. My apologies to (Grady), but we’re fighting for our lives out there, so I just did what I had to do.
“I’ve never turned a blind eye to anyone. He just comes and starts beating me in the race car, so… I understand he’s frustrated, but it’s a transfer spot again and we were just fighting for our lives.
Callihan says he never flipped Grady and only did a few “tough races.”
