Gaughan, a co-host on the SiriusXM NASCAR Radio’s Fantasy Racing Preview, offered his side of the altercation during the show.

“Texas is tough with the night race and the groove narrowed down,” Gaughan said. “It isn’t the first issue we had. It isn’t the first issue others have had. I finally just had enough.”

Gaughan finished 17th on Saturday. The 42-year-old Las Vegas native is currently ninth in the NXS standings. He and Chastain, 24, were called to the NASCAR Xfinity Series hauler following the row.

“Should I have done something different? Maybe,” Gaughan said. “At this point of my life, I am kinda in the don’t care (mode). “It’s amazing. I got a lot of text messages from our peers that seem to be happy. It is what it is.”

According to a NASCAR spokesman at Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday, the sanctioning body is looking into the incident but has nothing more to add at this time.
