“According to Henrico Police, Michael ‘Big Mike’ Scearce, 50, of Mount Ulla, N.C. was charged with two counts of assault. Thomas Costello, 35, of Kannapolis, N.C. was charged with one count of assault. Both crewmen have been released and a court date has yet to be set,” reports FOX Sports. This all went down at the NASCAR Nationwide race

The NASCAR pit fight occurred after both drivers and their reps were called to the NASCAR Nationwide Series hauler. Basically, Piquet and Scott settled their differences but the fight between the two mechanics flared up to the point where police had to get involved. It’s presumed that their fight involved what happened between the two drivers, but details are not cleat.

“I didn’t witness what took place last night outside of the race track. Our team members were walking to their cars and words were exchanged with members from another team, which led to an altercation. I am still learning all the exact details and, because it did happen outside of the track, local authorities became involved. We are working with them to resolve this matter. We are now concentrating on winning the Sprint Cup race tonight,” Richard Childress (president and CEO of Richard Childress Racing).

The NASCAR pit fight could result in fines for both crew members but NASCAR refused to speculate according to FOX Sports.

Danica Patrick Pole Postion! Daytona’s Fastest Lap 196.220 mph

Take that testosterone! Danica Patrick, you know her as Go Daddy‘s sexy brunette, millionaire, race car driver – scored the fastest lap at Daytona, exhilarating to a whopping 196.220 mph. Patrick was the eighth driver to make a qualifying attempt in Sunday’s session.


Patrick’s team brought a different car than she drove in a test last month after this model showed better aerodynamic results in the wind tunnel.

“It would be really nice,” she said. “It’s a very big pole for attention. Other races you’d feel as a driver more pleased to get, but this is a team effort.”

xxx-daytona-track-graphic-3_4_rx340A pole position at Daytona is nothing new for Patrick, who qualified first for last year’s season-opening Nationwide race at the 2.5-mile oval. But opening her first full season in Sprint Cup with her first pole in NASCAR’s premier series would be a coup. Source.
