Ricky Stenhouse Jr.‘s hopes of winning his first All-Star Race and the $1 million check ended on Lap 2 at North Wilkesboro Speedway after the No. 47 Chevrolet driver ended on the receiving end of contact with Kyle Busch — but the night didn‘t end there between the two.

On track, Stenhouse made a three-wide pass between Denny Hamlin and Busch after the race start. Busch quickly retaliated by making contact with the No. 47 Chevrolet and putting him in the wall.

Post-race, Stenhouse confronted Busch in the garage area. The two drivers exchanged words about their on-track incident before Stenhouse Jr. threw a punch — NASCAR security and and crew members then moved in to separate the drivers.
