Sometimes it takes a little physicality to spice things up a bit on the NASCAR circuit.

Any fan of any sport knows that athletes get emotional in the heat of battle.

NASCAR is no different and has seen its fair share of fiery actions on the part of drivers over the years.

Todd Bodine is the latest driver to show his emotional side, when he chucked his helmet at the passing truck of Nelson Piquet Jr. (at about the 1:45 mark of this video) after contact between the two resulted in a crash that took Bodine out of the Camping World Truck Series race last Saturday at Pocono.

Whether it's a bit of bumper cars during the race, a physical confrontation after the race, just a good ole chuck of the helmet, or some combination of the three, drivers have been finding ways to express their displeasure with other drivers for as long as NASCAR has been around.

As fans, it's that fire that we love to see. It lets us know that these guys really care about what they do and shows how driven these drivers are.

Not to mention, it's incredibly entertaining. Which brings us to this list, which is in no way all-inclusive. There have been way more than 10 great angry moments in NASCAR history. If there is one that comes to mind that isn't on this list, share it in the comments below.

With that said, here's our list—in no particular order—of 10 of the best angry outbursts in NASCAR history.
