Default Biffle's girlfriend chews out Busch's fiancee

The blonde and the brunette had it out. Doesn't seem like they pulled each others hair or clawed each others eyes out...tehehe.

Greg Biffle's racing day came to an early and frustrating end Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway when he was nudged from behind by Kurt Busch and spun out control.

And that didn't sit too well with Biffle, or Biffle's girlfriend, Nicole Lunders.

After the accident, Lunders climbed off Biffle's pit box and marched down pit road to angrily confront Busch's fiancee over what happened. The confrontation was brief, and it's not clear what point Nicole Lunders was trying to make. But as the two women had it out under the hot Texas sun, Tammy Wynette was likely smiling down to see Lunders "Stand By Her Man."

"That just shows her professionalism," Busch said of Lunders in the Fort Worth Star Telegram.

Biffle, who won the Nextel Cup race at Texas last April, was running well again. He had already led 49 laps, and was working back toward the front of the field when he was knocked out of the race on the 83rd lap.

"When you're the guy that all you have to do is lift on the gas pedal a little bit and elect not to run into the car in front of you on the straightaway, that's pretty unforgivable," Biffle said.

Busch said he was only trying to get out of the way.

"He checked up on the straightaway," said Busch, who was a lap down at the time. "I had no place else to go."

Busch managed to finish the Samsung/RadioShack 500, but had to make several stops because of damage to his front end. He was 34th, 48 laps behind winner Kasey Kahne. Biffle was 42nd.

Biffle had an early 7 1/2-second lead over Kahne before he pitted during the race's first caution and dropped to ninth. Biffle was headed back to the front when his car slammed into the wall so hard that the race had to be stopped for 10 minutes to repair the safer barrier.

Other than a scrape on his forearm, Biffle wasn't hurt.

Biffle also had a promising start at last fall's Cup race in Texas before running into disappointment. He went seventh to first in only 37 laps, but then had to go into the pit under green because of problems with the car. He ended up finishing 20th.
