10:13 AM ET 06.01 | A new rivalry reared its head during Sunday's Coca-Cola 600. On the final restart of the race, Kyle Busch positioned his car in between Jeff Burton and Clint Bowyer. That's when Busch's splitter got into Burton's left rear tire, causing the driver to lose speed. Though Burton angrily confronted Busch after the race, he also cut the driver some slack when asked about his confrontation with Denny Hamlin during the All-Star Race. "He's really aggressive, but he typically does it in a way that puts himself at harm," Burton said "Now, obviously if you're behind him and he gets in trouble, you're going to get in it with him. I like racing with Kyle; I really do. I know he's going to be aggressive and I know he's going to come at me, but I'm good with that."
