A furious Elliott waited for Busch on the apron of the track and flipped Busch the middle finger as he passed.
This was after Elliott had a win Wednesday at Darlington Raceway within his reach, but Busch accidentally wrecked him, leading to Elliott later flipping Busch off.

"It was a win for the sport, but it was a loss for me and my team", Elliott said. Busch's Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Denny Hamlin went on to win the rain-shortened event, with Busch finishing second.

"I want nothing more than to go and run well and try to put ourselves in position to win a lot of races, and we've been lucky to have been in few positions this year", said Elliott.
But Busch was far from done.
