Edwards, Harvick scuffle

Drivers get physical during argument

October 10, 2008


— Greg Biffle isn't angry with teammate Carl Edwards for starting a 12-car crash at Talladega Superspeedway.

Neither is Matt Kenseth.

Kevin Harvick? Not quite over it.

Witnesses said Edwards and Harvick were in a heated argument Thursday in the Nationwide Series garage at Lowe's Motor Speedway. Edwards apparently walked into Harvick's garage stall, and the two engaged in a heated argument.

Harvick appeared to try to walk away, and witnesses said Edwards reached for his shoulder to turn him back. Harvick then shoved Edwards, who stumbled onto the hood of Harvick's car, and the two had to be separated.

Edwards didn't deny the two argued, but wouldn't discuss the incident.

"The deal with me and Harvick is between me and him, and there's nothing else to talk about," he said. "I'm not talking about that. That's just what it is. We know where each other stand, and that's it."

Edwards triggered the late crash Sunday when he tried to push Biffle as the three Roush Fenway Racing cars raced for the lead. But his bumper hooked the corner of Biffle's, sending Biffle into a slide directly into Kenseth.
