|Dust Still Settling from Sonoma Scrapes
|DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- So much was made about all the feuding drivers after last week's race at Sonoma that few noticed a pair of rivals actually getting along.
Kyle Busch approached Kevin Harvick after Sunday's race and offered him a congratulatory handshake. He said Thursday the gesture was done because he felt he and Harvick raced each other hard, but clean, and wanted Harvick to know he appreciated it.
But don't believe the gesture has turned the two into best friends.
Harvick said Thursday he was confused by the handshake. He also didn't indicate he's changed his mind about Busch.
The two tangled post-race in May and their antics earned both a $25,000 fine.
