NASCAR star Matt Crafton denies sucker-punching Nick Sanchez, defends bloody melee

NASCAR Truck Series driver Matt Crafton got into a fight that left fellow competitor Nick Sanchez bruised and bloodied after their race at Talladega Superspeedway on Saturday.

Sanchez was seen on video bleeding from his nose and threatening Crafton. He said after the melee that he got sucker-punched while he was in the garage area.

Crafton explained his side of the issue Sunday in a series of posts on X, formerly Twitter. He started by telling his followers what wasn’t caught on the video that made the rounds on social media.

Two races remain on the Truck Series schedule this season — Homestead-Miami for the Baptist Health 200 and then the championship race at Phoenix on Nov. 3.
