Boiled Over Brad’s Selective Outrage

NASCAR fans got a bonus with the race at Richmond; it was a two for one special. Not only was there one of the best races we've seen in a long time, fans also got treated to a little "Saturday Night At The Fights." The headliner featured a mean right hook by Marcos Ambrose after a shove from Casey Mears; the undercard, a more familiar NASCAR refrain of love taps, finger pointing and bent sheet metal- this time between former champions Brad Keselowski and Matt Kenseth.
