WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) - Jimmie Johnson says he wasn't about to take any lip from Kurt Busch.
The two drivers confronted each other after last week's NASCAR Cup race at Pocono. They had slammed into each other on the final lap.
Johnson is a five-time Cup champion, and he and Busch have had dustups in the past.
Johnson said at a news conference at Watkins Glen International on Friday that he was angered by Busch's remarks as Johnson walked away following their argument in the pits. Johnson says he thought things were settled and then ``the guy gets real tough'' and starts ``running his mouth.''
On Sunday, Johnson accused Busch of trying to run him down. Busch contends Johnson made the first move. Busch finished third and Johnson fourth.
