Following Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway things got a little heated on pit road between drivers Daniel Hemric and Noah Gragson.
Hemric approached Gragson on pit road and then we are in for a good old scuffle on pit road. Gragson, no secret to post race incidents, was ready and went swinging but as you can see he was not the only member of his team to take a spot at Hemric.
Hemric had every right to go after Gragson.
LW Miller punches Hemric in the face. That deserves a suspension.
Gragson deserves a stiff penalty for backing into the #18 while it was being serviced.

The incident likely had a lot to do with an earlier incident on pit road between the two drivers where Gragson pit it in reverse while Hemric’s crew was working on his car.
