A fight in the pits during the final day of the Chili Bowl races in Tulsa was caught on video; and that video has gone viral.

The fight between two drivers from Indiana was triggered by a crash on the track.

If you follow motorsports, you know that fights in the pit area are not unusual, especially if two drivers get tangled up on the track.

And that is what happened on Saturday night on the final night of Chili Bowl races.

A YouTube video, shows Shane Cottle, the driver in the black threw a punch at another driver, Brad Kuhn.

The two were racing in the B Feature, where the top six cars advance to the Championship Race.

WATCH the video here. WARNING the video may contain language some may find offensive.

At the checkered flag, witnesses say Kuhn's car somehow collided with Cottle's, causing Cottle's car to flip. Witnesses also reported seeing Cottle chase Kuhn's car up the ramp that leads to the pit area.

Chili Bowl Public Relations Director, Bryan Hulbert, said, "It's gonna happen. We don't condone it, we don't encourage it. We have security on site and the crew members understand what's going on and they're the ones that stepped in and stopped it."

We were not able to reach Kuhn and Cottle for comments.
