A violent situation stole all eyes at the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 in Martinsville, where the Late Model Stock championship continues.

The fact caused an impact in the world of motorsports and immediately, the images began to circulate through social networks. It all started when Grady walked up to Callihan’s car, smashed the window, and punched him. The attacked driver tried to defend himself from inside the car. The violent reaction lasted for several seconds. Until Grady kicked against the door before being removed by the people who were at the scene of the incident. However, they couldn’t seem to stop him.

The violent event occurred at Martinsville Speedway during the qualifying stages. The aggressor assured Racing America statements that he felt harmed by Callihan. In addition, he stressed that his colleague made a face at him that unleashed his anger. The attacked pilot, for his part, affirmed that he never made fun of Grady, at the same time that he justified the maneuver that generated this fact: “We were fighting for our lives out there. You can’t give an inch when there are 95 cars. So I did what I had to do,” he told the Road and Track site.

The competition’s own account was in charge of replicating what happened in the pits. “We have tempers boiling in Martinsville. Andrew Grady takes out his frustration on Davey Callihan after accident in Heat 1″, they commented.
