NASCAR fighters brawled at the end of the Texas 500 Sunday at the Texas Motor Speedway, and though it’s unclear what touched off this melee, Jeff Gordon got the worst of it, as he walked away with a cut lip that was bloodied. It looked as if Kevin Harvick – who finished second in the race – pushed Brad Keselowski, and then mayhem erupted. Surely the combatants will have something to say about it shortly.
Harvick, the best. http://t.co/a7zDWmDn9e

Jimmie Johnson won the race.
[UPDATE: Gordon apparently took exception to something that he perceived Keselowski did intentionally during the race. Fox Sports’ Tom Jensen described what happened between the two drivers on the track: “On the restart, Gordon chose the highline and had contact with Keselowski, which gave him a flat tire and sent him spinning.”
That led to a green-white-checkered finish, which helped Johnson secure the victory. Keselowski wound up finishing third in the race, whereas Gordon finished all the way back at No. 29.]
