Over the weekend, furious fists flew at Virginia’s Martinsville Speedway.
On Saturday, NASCAR drivers Andrew Grady and Brandon Pierce wrecked during qualifying laps. Apparently, Andrew blamed wheel man Davey Callihan.
Speaking to Racing America, Andrew condescendingly recounted the kerfluffle. “End of the day,” he said, “we were really, really good. The car was really fast.”
But Davey dealt doom with his outdated bucket of bolts:
“[Y]ou get these dumb*sses that come in here and run with us. And they have no business running a late model, much less a lawn mower. I mean, he wasn’t close.”
The mad motorist accused Davey of dastardly driving that did in Brandon and himself:
“He dive-bombed me. He hooked me. He wrecked Brandon Pierce in the process.”
Andrew Grady says Davey Callihan flipped him off when he went to talk so he decided to ‘Mike Tyson his head.’

Andrew was interested in a dialogue; but Davey whittled his words to two:
“[I] wanted to talked to him, and he flipped me off.”
For a rightful response, the irate racer gave it his grown-up best:
“So I started Mike-Tysoning his head. I mean, you’re in a big-boy sport. When you wreck a man, you can take a grown-man a**-whooping. That’s how I feel.”
How did Davey feel? If he’d already de-helmeted, he likely had one heck of a headache:

As for it not being “close,” Davey rejects the notion. And he explained to the Daily Mail — in NASCAR, you race to win:
“It was for a transfer position at Martinsville. From my perspective, I was there. It was close. But you can’t give an inch for the transfer spot when there’s 95 cars, and I had to take it. It was just hard racing.”
“I do apologize to [Andrew],” he added, “but we’re fighting for our life out there, so I just did what I had to do.”
Furthermore, Davey insists he never offered Andrew the bird:
“I never flipped anybody off. He just comes, starts punching me inside the race car, so… I understand he’s frustrated. But again — it’s for the transfer spot, and we were just fighting for our life.”
They were fighting, alright. Or, at least, Andrew — AKA Mike Tyson — was. As described by the Mail, he “managed to pull down the window netting in [Davey’s] car and threw haymaker after haymaker at his head.”
It’s a solid reminder: Road rage is real — even at Martinsville Speedway.
On Saturday, the “NAS” is “NASCAR” stood for “nasty.”
