Richard Childress put Kyle Busch in a headlock and punched him several times before Busch fell to the ground in an altercation following the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Kansas Speedway.

According to reports by Jeff Gluck of SB Nation and Lee Spencer at Fox Sports, the above incident resulted when Busch made a comment that apparently didn't sit well with 65-year-old Childress.

Joey Coulter who drives for Richard Childress Racing was racing Busch really hard for fifth position. At the conclusion of the race, Busch traded a little paint when he pulled alongside Coulter's truck.

According to Gluck's report, Childress confronted Busch in the garage area after the race.

It seems RCR drivers and the younger Busch brother mix a bit like oil and water. He is currently on probation for knocking Kevin Harvick's driverless car into the pit wall at Darlington as Harvick took a swing at him.

Could it be that Childress has put a whooping on Busch that he might not soon forget and what will the repercussions be with NASCAR?

Certainly there is more to come about this incident and look for Busch in his biggest sunglasses at the STP 400 in Kansas.

The truck race was won by RCR driver, Clint Bowyer in a KHI truck.
