Jacques Villeneuve ticks off Max Papis - Click above to watch video after the jump

Yesterday's Bucyrus 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Road America finished ugly, with wrecked cars and angry drivers highlighting a conclusion that took a lot longer than it probably should have. The race was set for a green-white-checkered finish, and as it went back to green, Jacques Villeneuve, driving the #22 Dodge Challenger, tried to make a move to the outside to gain position on the leaders.

Villeneuve quickly ran out of road, however, and as he dove in to stay off the grass, he bumped Brian Scott's #11 Toyota, sending it into the gravel, and then cut off Max Papis, driving the #33 Chevrolet. Papis went hard into Villeneuve's Dodge, then slid off the track into the wall. Thanks to the ubiquitous in-car radio feeds in NASCAR coverage, we got to hear Papis react with a disgusted, "Thank you, Jacques. Good job," followed by, "I knew the 22 was going to do something stupid."

As everyone pitted, Villeneuve caught plenty of flack. Scott was first in line, riding up behind Villeneuve and bumping his Dodge as it entered the pits. Then, a ticked-off Papis pulled alongside and parked to give Villeneuve a piece of his mind.

As for the race itself, two more green-white-checkered attempts were needed to being it to an end. Reed Sorenson was awarded the win as the race ended under yellow, taking first after race officials ruled that Ron Fellows, who appeared to be the victor, had gained position on Sorenson after the yellow flag had come out. As for Jacques Villeneuve? He podiumed, finishing third. Hit the jump to watch the Villeneuve mishap.
