Fights between NASCAR drivers have made the news recently thanks to a wild brawl at the Texas 500 last weekend involving Brad Keselowski, Jeff Gordon, Kevin Harvick and their teams.

Jalopnik.com notes that no one is taking official bets on future NASCAR fights, but reports that the website MyTopSportsbooks.com is publishing odds on who will be brawling next.

Odds Brad Keselowski gets into another fight with Denny Hamlin or Matt Kenseth before the end of the Sprint Cup Chase – 100/1
