Gordon was more than a bit upset at an incident involving himself and Keselowski, both contenders for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Heavyweight Championship of the World, during the race. Keselowski responded with some heated words of his own. Neither Gordon nor Keselowski could be clearly heard because they were not holding microphones at the time.
Fellow racer (and current NASCAR Intercontinental Champion) Kevin Harvick helped incite the melee by entering pit ring and running some interference on Keselowski.
This was all that was needed to begin the (royal?) rumble. Gordon, Keselowski, and their teams started throwing punches, kicks, and suplexes, leaving both drivers with fat lips.
In his promo sting after the brawl, Gordon did not divulge whether the pair will meet at next year’s NASCAR SummerSlam. He did, however, comment on his current thoughts about Keselowski. They are not kind.
