Now we are hearing about the alleged fight between Robby Gordon and Brad Parrott (Roush Racing crew chief in the Busch Series) that took place before Sunday's race.

The General Chit Chat file has more on the possible reasons for the fight, in which Parrott allegedly kneed Gordon in the groin, and Gordon wanted to get back at Parrott.

Did Fox know about the alleged incident during the telecast?  If so, why was there no mention?  Were they being very, very careful (after all, NASCAR has started an investigation)?  Or was there a language barrier from the witnesses?

This is not like Tony Stewart punching out Brian Vickers in 2004 or Jimmy Spencer doing the same to Kurt Busch in 2003.  Both occurred after the races and it's understandable if the cameras weren't rolling in those cases.

I must have missed that.  Sorry.  I was too busy trying to keep up with everything else going on (PGA golf, North Carolina vs. Duke, and so on).
