Martin Truex, J. tells his crew to punch a spotter in the face for him

The Overton’s 400 at Pocono Raceway had far less drama than the previous week’s Brickyard 400, but the radio scanner still caught plenty of trash talk between drivers and their crews.

Perhaps the funniest comment of the day belonged to Martin Truex Jr., who finished third in the race. Truex’s spotter told him David Ragan’s 38 car was coming up on the inside of the 78 car, and Truex was displeased.

“What the (expletive),” Truex said. “Go find David Ragan’s spotter, punch him in the face for me.”

Truex later added, “They don’t (expletive) pay attention. We got a bunch of idiots out here.”

Truex still finished third, and Sunday’s race was all about Kyle Busch finally ending his winless streak.

Entering the race, Busch had led for the second-most laps of any driver this season, but he didn’t have a win. That ended on Sunday, and he clinched his spot in the postseason field.

Only three spots remain for the playoffs, so the last five races of the season are sure to be tension-packed and filled with drama.
