The fiercest fight in Las Vegas on March 11 didn’t happen in a boxing ring but on a NASCAR track! A furious Kyle Busch jumped Joey Logano in revenge for causing him to wreck, but ended up with a bloody gash across his forehead!
They say “What Happens In Vegas, Stays In Vegas,” but it’s unlikely Kyle Busch, 31, and Joey Logano, 26, will leave their bad blood behind them – not after this fight! Following the end of the Kobalt 400 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Kyle left his pit and made a beeline straight for Joey. The 2015 NASCAR champion then took a swing at Joey’s face, which triggered off a massive brawl!
Joey’s crew immediately jumped in to wrestle Kyle to the ground, with some nailing a few shots of their own on the “Rowdy” driver. When Kyle was finally pulled out from the pile of bodies, his forehead was stained with his own blood. Kyle still wanted to fight and NASCAR officials quickly got Kyle out of there.

Kyle was clearly upset over what happened in the closing moments of the race, according to USA Today. On the final lap, Kyle and Joey were racing hard when Brad Keselowski’s, 33, car began to slow down ahead of them. Kyle moved to get past Brad, which put directly him in Joey’s line. It was a tight squeeze, but as the two fought for position, they made contact. This bump caused Kyle’s car to spin out off the track and down pit road! Miraculously, he avoided crashing his car but his Top-5 finish was shot. He ended up 22nd, while Martin Truex Jr., 36, won the race.
“I got dumped,” a bloody Kyle said after the fight, per ESPN. “[Joey] flat-out just drove straight in the corner and wrecked me. That’s how Joey races, so he’s going to get it.” While this seems to imply that this war between these two isn’t over, Joe didn’t seem too concerned over what happened both during and after the race.
When asked if any punches landed during the fight, Joey smiled and said, “None to me. … I was racing hard there at the end. …Kyle and I usually race well together and don’t have any issues. …It was nothing intentional, but obviously he thinks that. We’ll move on.”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Did Joey intentionally wreck Kyle? Do you think these two should be punished?
