Brad Keselowski avoided saying much about the incident. He said, “I’ll talk to him privately. I don’t need to be a jerk over the media.”

On the other hand, when asked about the incident, Dillon said, “You guys saw it, right? I mean it’s just hard racing, I guess. We’ve gone at it a couple of times the last two years; one time, I hit really hard. I just don’t like the way certain people race me, and it’s probably not the right way to do it under caution.”

When asked if he had spoken to Keselowski he responded, “No, I don’t talk to him.”

After seeing the incident and listening to the team radio, fans were not too pleased with what Dillon did and took over social media to express their thoughts.

Many suggested that Dillon did it to create drama for his TV show. This isn’t the first time that these two have locked horns before. Last year in Michigan, Keselowski punted Dillion, sending him hard into the wall.
