If the football season wasn’t officially in full swing before, it definitely is now after Cole Custer made a flying tackle of fellow NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver John Hunter Nemecheck on Sunday afternoon at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.
Nemechek was declared winner of a wild Chevrolet Silverado 250 Sunday, but he definitely appeared to take out Custer at the start-finish line in order to take the checkered flag.
Custer did not appreciate it, and showed his displeasure with Nemechek by charging him and tackling Nemechek in front of the flagstand after both drivers had climbed from their trucks.

Nemechek insisted he earned the victory fairly.
"I caught the No. 00 (of Custer) there, and we didn’t wreck him for the win. Rubbin’ is racin’," Nemechek told FOX Sports in Victory Lane. "If I had been in the same spot, he would have done the same thing to me to get a win. You have to do everything you can to get a win here."
Custer obviously disagreed.
"We had a really fast truck. We got taken out," Custer said. "He hit me going into the second-to-last corner, and he hit me again. I don’t know what else to do. But that’s how it is, I guess."
Who was right? Here is your chance to make that call.
