Tempers flare, voices raised after run-in
Saturday, Oct. 29, 2011
MARTINSVILLE, Va. Kevin Harvick and Greg Biffle got into a heated verbal exchange in the garage Saturday at Martinsville Speedway following a run-in on the track during Sprint Cup Series practice.
At one point during the practice session, Biffle ran into the back of Harvick's No. 29 Chevrolet near the start/finish line. Harvick did not like it, and slammed into Biffle's No. 16 Ford.
The two drivers stopped at the exit of Turn 2, then headed for the garage. Biffle, after exiting his car, walked to Harvick's stall to confront him.
Harvick "was upset with (Jeff Gordon) for some reason, going slow in the corner, then (Harvick) took off and I was on his bumper and he lifted at the flag stand," Biffle wrote on his Twitter account after the incident.
Harvick is fifth in the series standings, 26 points behind leader Carl Edwards, who is Biffle's teammate at Roush Fenway Racing.
