The track is not the only place NASCAR drivers Brad Keselowski and Kyle Busch get after it. The longtime rivals are known to have an icy relationship, but things are certainly heating up between the two on social media.

“I’ve just got to say of how proud I am of all our Toyota, TRD teammates and guys and teams, Furniture Row, Joe Gibbs Racing, TRD … the whole package is there. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication from a lot of great people, and I feel like right now all he’s doing is slapping these people across the face.”
Keselowski wasn’t done tweeting:
Needless to say, all this talk is going to play out in a very interesting race on Sunday.
