No. 18 crew chief Adam Stevens, No. 78 crewmembers exchange words at Indy

RELATED: See wreck prior to incident

Adam Stevens, crew chief of Kyle Busch’s No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota, and crewmembers of the No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Toyota of Martin Truex Jr. had a verbal confrontation on Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Video that first aired on FS1 Tuesday night shows Stevens approaching the 78 crew in their box, instigating some pointed words.

“I don’t care who you are — get out of my box,” one crewmember shouted at Stevens, who replied “Alright, cowboy.”

Busch and Truex Jr. were involved in a wreck on Lap 112 at the Brickyard. Truex Jr. was running first and Busch second before wrecking out.

Coming out of Turn 1, Truex Jr.’s car got loose, slid up the track and smacked Busch’s car. Both machines hit the wall hard, with Truex’s car catching fire.

Truex Jr. accepted blame for the incident, saying “totally my fault.”

Furniture Row Racing is a satellite team of Joe Gibbs Racing.
