Per NASCAR reporter Jeff Gluck, Busch got on the golf cart after signing autographs, and the man apparently hit Busch on the arm.

Per WJHL's Slater Teague, Busch's team and Bristol Motor Speedway officials have not responded to requests for comment on the post-race altercation.

Busch, who is currently leading the Monster Energy Series standings, was at the center of controversy during Saturday's race when he bumped Martin Truex Jr., causing him to slam into the wall.

During the 481st lap of the race, Busch's night came to an end when he blew out a tire after making contact with Chris Buescher and Jimmie Johnson.
