Kevin Harvick with some playground tactics in shove
FORT WORTH, Texas — Kevin Harvick likes watching a good fight. After all, his management company represents fighters in the UFC.

So it wasn’t much of a surprise to see Harvick play the instigator role in the Brad Keselowski-Jeff Gordon melee following the AAA Texas 500 Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway.

As Gordon shouted at Keselowski for contact in the waning laps, Harvick went over and pushed Keselowski toward Gordon, saying “Why don’t you go fight your own fight?” It was at that point, that one of the biggest NASCAR brawls in recent years broke out with members of several teams and crews involved.

“If you're going to race like that, you're going to have to man up at some point,” Harvick said. “He's done it several times. You can't just turn around and let everybody fight all the time without you in there. You have to stand up for your actions at some point yourself.”

Keselowski tried to split the gap between Jimmie Johnson and Gordon for the lead in overtime and ended up banging into Gordon and cutting his tire. He said he did not come to the track to throw punches.
