Kyle Busch, Joey Logano Fight on Pit Road

Joey Logano and Jamie Mc Murray lead the pack as they come out of a caution lap during a NASCAR Cup Series auto race Sunday

Martin Truex Jr. passed Brad Keselowski with two laps to go and avoided a last-lap wreck that led to a pit-road brawl and left Kyle Busch bloodied in a wild finish to the NASCAR Cup race Sunday.

According to TMZ, Joey Logano - who drives the Number 22 Ford Fusion for Team Penske - seemingly made Busch's vehicle spin out, thus costing the race for Busch. Don't believe me? Skip to the 1:17 mark for the replay, where you can quite clearly see THIS.

As Logano entered the next corner, his auto drifted up the track and into Busch, which caused Busch to spin out.

Logano finished fourth in the race, while Busch ended up finishing 22nd.

Fans who want a close, convenient parking spot which will allow them a shorter, quicker entry to the grandstands for Talladega Superspeedway's Sparks Energy 300 Xfinity Series and GEICO 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series events on May 6-7 now have a great opportunity with the track's upgraded parking options.

Logano was less concerned afterward, explaining that the contact was unintentional, as he fought a sliding vehicle through the last turn before the checkered flag.

Busch walked away from the melee with a bleeding forehead. What we know for sure is that Busch received a small gash above his right eye, because the blood is plainly visible. I was going to spin out so I'm trying to chase it up (the track) and he was there. "He's gonna get it".

"We shouldn't come out of our chairs over this", France said. "I was racing hard there at end". By the time NASCAR officials pulled Busch from the bottom of the pile, his face was battered and bloodied.

"The recent actions by Kyle Busch are not consistent with the values of Mars Chocolate North America".

Busch, who was upset because Logano wrecked him on the final lap, confronted Logano on pit road as Logano climbed out of his vehicle. NASCAR came down hard on Kenseth with a two-race suspension while making it clear to the competition what will and will not be tolerated. Kyle and I usually race well together, usually we don't have any issues.

That gave Toyota a win after Ford victories in the season's first two races.

"I thought we made that better, but obviously we haven't", Harvick said.

"I think our intention would be not to react unless we see something we haven't seen yet (or) something comes up with from those discussions".

And as Truex said, NASCAR loves it.
