"We had a discussion with them, more about what happened post-race than anything during it," NASCAR spokesperson Kerry Tharp said Sunday. "It's right after the race. We wanted to have both of them in there to talk about that. As our practice is, we'll get back to Concord (N.C) and have our meeting and if there is anything more to come out of it, it will at that time. And if it doesn't, it won't."
The incident occurred after the Bojangles Southern 500 at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway. It was sparked after Busch and Newman were involved in a crash on lap 361. Newman’s Stewart-Haas Racing team was upset that Busch nearly hit Newman's team members coming out pit row, where they had neighboring stops.
Tempers flared again when Busch bumped the back of Newman's car after the race. Members of Newman's crew met Busch as he left the vehicle and a shoving match ensued. It caused a NASCAR official to fall onto the hood of Busch's car. Newman walked away from his car before the incident escalated.
Busch's transgressions on the circuit have been many, including a suspension by his owner, fines NASCAR and has feuds with numerous drivers. After numerous anger management issues, he started seeing a sports psychologist last winter.
