Race car drivers fight after crash, video goes viral
ANDERSON, Ind: A bizarre is going rounds on the internet showing fight between two drivers after the crash at the Anderson Speedway in Indiana.
In a video that has more than 25,000 views, during the next to last race of the night, two drivers confronted one another after a black race car was bumped off the track, then crashed into another.
Jeffery Swinford, driver of the black car, then drove his vehicle on top of race car No. 33, driven by Shawn Cullen.
Both drivers got out of their cars and fought for about 30 seconds before a police officer used a Tazer on Cullen.
Both drivers were led away in handcuffs.
“It is absolutely totally, dangerous,” said Anderson Speedway Owner Rick Dawson. “It is a 3500 pound race car going after an individual. It’s no different than a gun or a knife, or a bomb as far as I’m concerned. It’s gonna have the same results of things don’t go right.”
The Madison County prosecutor agrees and said the event could have been disastrous.
“We’ve seen event with Tony Stewart, somebody got killed in that incident,” said Rodney Cummings. “It’s a dangerous place to be and injuries can occur. Don’t let your temper get the better of you. That would be the moral of the story.”
