Kevin Harvick pushed Brad Keselowski towards Jeff Gordon after the Cup Series playoff race at Texas Motor Speedway in 2014 leading to a brawl.

A big confrontation erupted between Keselowski and Gordon after the race as the two drivers continued their battle from the race track. When the two drivers confronted each other, they were a bit apart surrounded by a lot of people. But Harvick decided to push Keselowski towards the agitated Gordon and then the brawl started.

Speaking about the incident and his role in it during an appearance on “Stacking Pennies With Corey LaJoie,”, Harvick explained his reason to do so.

“I know what I was thinking when I pushed him into the fight and then it caused the chaos,” Harvick said. “For me, my mind was, ‘Man, we didn’t win tonight. We need chaos.’ In the end, we made it to Homestead.

“…We needed the story to go elsewhere other than us and being out of contention. It did exactly what I wanted it to do, but it’s not the best thing for your kids to find on YouTube, starting the fight.”

It was very mischievous but a calculated move from Harvick who wanted to remove attention from his poor race.  Nonetheless, he went on to win the following two races and the championship in the end.

Harvick said that he regrets his decision at that time but that he just needed to put on a show”.
