Unlike in competitions in leagues such as the NFL and NHL, NASCAR feuds, more often than not, come down to mano-a-mano showdowns. Truth be told, we’ve seen drivers who are teammates begin rivalries with each other after trading paint on tracks. These tremendous athletes embrace danger and face serious risks whenever they step into their vehicles, even for practices and qualifying laps. That’s why memorable feuds become so personal and, in some instances, violent. These battles between all-time greats, NASCAR legends and individuals trying to make their names in the industry generate headlines, buzz and excitement. Sure, those in charge of NASCAR would prefer if drivers didn’t feel a need to engage in certain extracurricular activities following races. Fans, meanwhile, look forward to these fights, just as hockey viewers enjoy watching two players go toe-to-toe on the ice. Just you wait until a mixed martial artist turns to NASCAR for a second career.
