Need a refresher on why Busch was furious enough to throw a punch at Logano ? "That' s how Joey races. He' s gonna get it ."- @ KyleBusch after the altercation in Vegas with the No. 22 crew. Kendrick Perkins says Warriors shouldn't pick a battle with him: 'Choose that ( expletive ) wisely'.

Following NASCAR's visit to Michigan International Speedway last weekend, we're going highlight a couple little spats between drivers. One conflict has notable history behind it, while others are simply a product the day's race.

But he one-liners, fits of frustration and (joking?) threats of violence overheard from the radio audio at the FireKeepers Casino 400 on Sunday are entertaining insults, nonetheless. So let's get right into it.

Three Cup teams penalized practice time at Michigan

  Three Cup teams penalized practice time at Michigan Joey Logano and Chase Elliott among those who will be penalized practice time at Michigan.Joey Logano and Chase Elliott each will miss 15 minutes for failing inspection twice last week at Pocono. The No. 99 StarCom Racing team, which features Garrett Smithley making his Cup debut this weekend, also will be docked 15 minutes for being late to inspection previously.

Kyle Busch felt battling with Joey Logano lost him the shot at a title: "He held me up. "We gave it our all, so congratulations to the 78 (Truex). They deserved it probably on every other race but today. "I thought we were better.

Kyle Busch was furious at Joey Logano after Busch ’ s No. 18 spun out on the final lap of Sunday’ s NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Kobalt 400 in Las Vegas. He' s gonna get it ."- @ KyleBusch after the altercation in Vegas with the No. 22 crew.

Kyle Busch vs. Joey Logano

The narrative of these two rivals racing hard and fighting each other is nothing new. Most notably, remember last season when their cars got into each other in Las Vegas and Busch threw a punch at Logano on pit road? Even the fans who pick one of their sides will likely never cross over.

At the Michigan track Sunday, Busch finished fourth while Logano was seventh. But there was one particular moment (at the 1:55-minute mark in the video above) during the race when the No. 18 Toyota driver sounded like he was ready to throw down with Logano again.

Busch slid into a somewhat small gap behind teammate Denny Hamlin in the No. 11 Toyota and just barely ahead of Logano's No. 22 Ford. Logano responded by making some light contact with Busch's bumper as he dropped down to the inside of the track to try and pass the 18 car right back.

Obviously, Busch didn't care for that, saying:

"Go tell the 22 if he swipes my rear bumper again and tries to fence me, it's (expletive) on! Godddddd! This is the fourth time, the fourth (expletive) time I've run him down."

We're not going to try and guess what Busch means when he says, "It's (expletive) on!" But it's probably not good.

While we don't know what Logano was thinking in that moment, not letting Busch get away with that speaks for itself. Also, Logano's teammate, Brad Keselowski, shed some light on it to FOX Sports, saying, "By the time the 18 fills (the gap), Joey says, 'That's it, I'm not lifting. You came up here intentional, I had a run. You're going to get a little bumper. I'm going to try to pass you.'"

Kurt Busch takes Michigan pole over Keselowski

  Kurt Busch takes Michigan pole over Keselowski Kurt Busch loves coming to Michigan and on Friday he showed why. Busch surprised his Stewart-Haas Racing teammate Kevin Harvick with an average lap speed of 203.361 mph in the final round of qualifying to win the pole for Sunday’s FireKeepers 400 at Michigan International Speedway.Harvick had easily been fastest through the first two rounds.Brad Keselowski ended up second (203.156 mph), Kyle Busch was third (202.954 mph), Harvick fourth and Joey Logano completed the top-five.The pole is Busch’s second this season, third at Michigan and 24th in his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series career.

When Kyle Busch got out of his car following the Kobalt 400 finish on Sunday and walked down pit road toward Joey Logano , he was clearly on a mission, and there were only so many ways Tony Finau tells a hilarious Tiger Woods story that ended with the legend calling him an '( expletive )'. 1w ago.

- Joey Logano . 23. "I'm gonna have nightmares tonight about kids eating free." - Kevin Harvick. 22. "Jesus H. Christ, I am way past the commitment line." I swear I'm gonna kill that ( expletive ). We had this race won. It was WON!" - Kyle Busch .

Austin Dillon vs. Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

This one didn't really materialize into anything serious, but the two drivers didn't appear to be very happy as they fought for position early in the race. Dillon's No. 3 Chevrolet and Stenhouse's No. 17 Ford make brief contact with each other, and this is what was overheard on the radio audio (30-second mark):

Dillon's spotter Andy Houston: I mean, come on, clown! I don't understand what the 17 is so pissed off about. … He cost us four spots there.

Dillon: I ain't worried about him.

Stenhouse: I'm done. Just because his granddad owns the company, he thinks he owns the whole track.

Stenhouse's jab is the result of Dillon driving for his grandfather, Richard Childress, but it's also possible there's a stress factor here.

As Keselowski points out in the video above, Dillon has a place secured in the playoffs after winning the Daytona 500, while Stenhouse - who won two races last year - is still looking for his first 2018 victory. Stenhouse was also heard complaining about the quality of his car and being stuck in the middle of the pack.

  Preview: The FireKeepers Casino 400 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Race at Michigan It's all about speed at Michigan International Speedway, but will the pole-sitter Kurt Busch win the FireKeepers Casino 400? Fast Three TimesHarvick’s No. 4 Busch Beer Ford Fusion is ‘Freaky Fast’ every week. Martin Truex Jr. is no stranger to speed either. As of late, Joe Gibbs Racing driver Kyle Busch is in a record-breaking mood and Kyle Larson is on the verge of setting his own records.Larson has three consecutive runner-up finishes this season and three consecutive race wins at Michigan.

At least that’ s not the way Busch saw it . Busch felt he had the race car and the speed to track down Truex and eventually pass him – had it not been for Joey Logano . As they came to the end, Kyle Larson was in the picture a little bit. You can’t put the blame on Joey Logano .

A furious Kyle Busch jumped Joey Logano in revenge for causing him to wreck, but ended up with a bloody gash across his forehead! They say “What Happens In Vegas, Stays In Vegas,” but it ’ s unlikely Kyle Busch , 31, and Joey Logano , 26, will leave their bad blood behind them – not after this

Dillon finished 14th while Stenhouse was 29th.

NASCAR vs. Mother Nature

The weather threatened racing all weekend, and Sunday's event ended early because of rain. Clint Bowyer was declared the winner. It's his second win of the season following a 190-race winless streak.

Bowyer: Get your damn clothes off and get to dancing.

Crew chief Mike Bugarewicz: Why do you need no clothes to do that?

Bowyer: I don't know. It's more when when you're partying naked.

Dale Jr. posts photo of his father from 1975 that isn't intimidating at all .
The 1970s were great for hairstyles, high-collared shirts and those rare family photos that people stuck in books called photo albums, which are still wonderful to look through for those lucky enough to have a few laying around the house. What the 70s weren’t great for were home mortgage rates, but you cannot tell that hardship by looking at Dale Earnhardt in this photo from 1975. Dale Jr. posted the picture from his aunt on Instagram, and it’s one we haven’t seen before — have fun trying to figure out what the occasion was that made ‘The Intimidator’ let down his guard.
