A video posted online from Anderson Speedway in Anderson, Indiana, shows two racecar drivers getting into a fistfight after one of the drivers got upset after being crashed into, and proceeded to drive up the other car’s hood after the initial crash.

“Jeffery Swinford (black car) and Shawn Cullen (No. 33) were driving in a figure-8 race at Anderson Speedway in Indiana when they collided, sending Swinford to the grass,” Yahoo Sports reported. “He responded by challenging Cullen and then driving his car up and onto Cullen’s hood. That doesn’t tend to go over well with a driver, and so Cullen got out of his car to have words.”

High-pitched screams were heard in the stands after the first crash, followed by loud cheering after Swinford proceeded to drive up the hood of Cullen’s racecar.

“It is absolutely totally, dangerous,” Anderson Speedway Owner Rick Dawson told WRTV. “It is a 3500 pound race car going after an individual. It’s no different than a gun or a knife, or a bomb, as far as I’m concerned. It’s going to have the same results of things don’t go right.”
