After an eventful AdventHealth 400 at Kansas Speedway, Noah Gragson confronted Ross Chastain on pit road. This was in response to Chastain crowding Gragson off of turn four. Chastain has been at the center of controversy after multiple on-track incidents that have angered many of his competitors.
The Incident + The Aftermath
NASCAR had a behind-the-scenes view of the incident which included some of the conversation Chastain and Gragson had.
After the two were separated, both said their piece to Fox Sports following the incident. Gragson discussed doing what he feels other competitors have talked about doing, while Chastain talked about standing his ground.
Soon following the Fox Sports interview, Gragson was interviewed on pit road once again. There he mentioned that multiple drivers have been talking about someone needing to confront Chastain, specifically mentioning Chase Elliot.
After cooling down, Chastain spoke to more media members following the race. He noted that this is not the first time Gragson has confronted him about an on-track incident. The two also had an incident at Talladega a few weeks ago.
