RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Two Richard Childress Racing crew members have been arrested following a fight in the motorhome lot at Richmond International Raceway.
Henrico County police say Michael Searce was arrested on two charges of misdemeanor assault, and Thomas Costello was arrested on one count of misdemeanor assault. They were released early Saturday.
Both are crew members for RCR driver Brian Scott's Nationwide Series team.
The fight occurred after Friday night's Nationwide Series race.
Scott and rival driver Nelson Piquet Jr. had tangled on the track and in the pits after. Crews for both drivers confronted each other after the race when Scott went over to Piquet's car. Piquet shoved him and then kicked Scott in the groin.
The fight that led to the arrests occurred after the drivers had returned to their motorhomes.
