Fan Awards: Best Confrontation

RacingOne kicks off our annual NASCAR Fan Awards for 2007 with the first of 12 categories with a look back at the best confrontation from the past season.

The two annual road course races for the Cup circuit are usually loaded with rough driving and high emotions and that was certainly the case during last August's Centurion Boats at The Glen at the famed Watkins Glen International.

Road racing specialist Juan Pablo Montoya and Kevin Harvick were involved in a tangle that began on track and soon wound up off.

Montoya was trying to block Martin Truex Jr. entering Turn 1 and the two touched, sending Montoya into Harvick. Jeff Burton then came by and was swept up in the incident.

Harvick and Montoya then began an angry exchange with both drivers grabbing the other until they were separated by officials.

"We got tapped from behind, and we got run over by the 42," Harvick said. "But it seems the 42 runs over someone every week. I'm frustrated with that particular car. We thought we had a chance to win there."

That commented didn't sit well with Montoya.

"I don't appreciate that," Montoya said. "I have no respect for the guy. I used to have respect for the guy."

The incident is our choice for the Best Confrontation of the season, what's yours?
