Tony Stewart throws helmet at Matt Kenseth after wreck (Video)

Tony Stewart was fuming after wrecking during Saturday’s Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol, Tenn., and he showed his displeasure with Matt Kenseth by throwing his helmet at the No. 17 car.

Stewart and Kenseth were battling for the lead on lap 332 when Kenseth slid up and made contact with the No. 14 car. Stewart moved down on the track and continued the contact with Kenseth until both cars crashed.

Stewart was so upset with Kenseth that he chucked his helmet at the No. 17 car as Kenseth was making his way down pit road.

Stewart, a three-time Sprint Cup winner, is known for speaking his mind and lacking a filter, so the reaction was hardly surprising. It was actually pretty awesome.

Stewart then promised to run over Kenseth every chance he gets.

“We weren’t that great of a race car,” Stewart said during interviews, per FOXSports.com. “But we were definitely faster than that after that restart. I checked up twice to not run over him (Kenseth), and I learned my lesson there. I’m going to run over him every him every chance I’ve got from now ‘til the end of the year, every chance I’ve got.”

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Says Matt Kenseth Owes Him $2,500 From Facial Hair Bet

If Matt Kenseth is a man of his word, he had better get Dale Earnhardt Jr. the $2,500 he owes him sometime in the near future.  The two drivers recently agreed upon one of the manliest man bets you can think of.  According to the L.A. Times, Kenseth showed up to Earnhardt Jr.’s 70s-themed New Year’s Eve party rocking a beard.  Apparently Dale Jr. saw the beard and had to bet Kenseth $2,500 that he wouldn’t keep it until the Daytona 500 test sessions.  The first of those test laps took place on Thursday.

“We actually sent a few texts back and forth to confirm the bet, and he shaved his beard,” Earnhardt said. “I told him to go to the bank, but maybe he forgot. I want my $2,500.”

Kenseth downplayed the bet, saying he would have kept the beard if not for all the photo shoots and interviews he was told he had to do this week.  Well isn’t he just a celebrity?

“(I was told) you’ve got to do a photo here and you’ve got to do this interview and do a photo shoot there,” Kenseth explained. “So I guess I lost. I’ll try to scrounge (the money) up somewhere, I guess.”

The bottom line is Dale Jr. is still rocking a burly man beard, so if there was a gentleman’s wager Kenseth needs to square up.  If there are two things men don’t screw around with, they are gambling and facial hair.
