I am disappointed to see the rift between Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth nearly come to fisticuffs. It's one thing to have a problem with a teammate, but it's another thing to go after him when he's going to be interviewed! You've got to keep that private lest you want to end up on YouTube.
In regards to the lifting of the fist, the article notes:
Smith said that the Martinsville incident would not have attracted the attention and concern that it did had Edwards not balled up his fist. He also said there was no danger that Edwards would have used that fist.
“These racing things are so common between drivers,” Smith said. “If Carl was not so over the edge in a public display of making Matt flinch, there would be nothing to it. It was eighth-grade boys locker room. It was, ‘Ha, ha, made you flinch.’ ”
Carl does grin before he walks away. Still, it looks bad. I'm glad my kids haven't seen that clip.
