Edwards, Harvick Confrontation

ESPN is reporting that Carl Edwards and Kevin Harvick were involved in an altercation in the Nationwide Series garage at Lowe’s Motor Speedway.

According to eye witness accounts, Edwards approached Harvick to talk. The conversation turn “heated,” and Harvick turned to walk away, when Edwards grabbed him by the shoulder and spun him around. Harvick then shoved Edwards, according to witnesses, who landed on the hood of Harvick’s No. 33 Chevy, leaving a dent.

Harvick’s motorcoach driver then put Edwards in a headlock. No punches were thrown.

Edwards said:

The deal with me and Harvick is between me and him and there’s nothing else to talk about. I’m not talking about that. That’s just what it is. We know where each other stand and that’s it.

The exchange was said to be the product of a handwritten note Edwards left in a seat on Harvick’s airplane following the AMP Energy 500 last weekend at Talladega Superspeedway. The note facetiously thanked Harvick for disparaging comments he made toward Edwards on ABC following a multi-car wreck on Lap 174 of 188, which was triggered when Edwards tapped teammate Greg Biffle.

Harvick said:

I know that his fans won’t be very proud of him sitting back there riding around like a pansy. If he had been racing all day, maybe he would have known how long the front of his car was.
