'...he almost cut my tyre...' so he deliberately waits for him wrecks Clint's car and his own and numerous other cars, almost takes out the championship leader with his actions.
What a terrific role model!!!!!!!
This is one aspect of Nascar that I totally detest.
Teams strugle at times to find sponsors to get together the finance required these days for racing, then those teems spend countless hours constructing these cars for racing, only for them to be trashed by a selfish idiot like this, yes I realise that there is history between those two but grow up and sort it out like men off the track and dont involve others. That was a cowards move by a little man, I dont care that he's an ex 4 times champ. Looks like he's a has been racer now, cant fight at the front for wins so decides to just fight!!!!
Nascar must take some blame for this also they seem to be toothless at times.

I just watched this race on replay and 100% agree that this is pathetic situation, but people need to take a step back and let the emotions settle a bit.

I'm not a NASCAR "Fan" so I have no vested interest in saying any of this but Gordon did not "wreck" Boyer... he may (as he has admitted) have wanted to make his car as in the way as possible but he made no deliberate moves etc to hit Boyer's car. IMO Boyer made the mistake of going onto the apron to go around Gordon as misjudged his position because it is HIS car doing most of the moving around on the track

Just Observing - I think you should look at it again, and take it into consideration that Gordon deliberately ran slow to allow Boyer to come up to him in order to trash his car.

You also disagree with Gordon's view of events who ADMITS to INTENTIONALLY wreck Bowers car. I'm sure he would'nt admit to it had he not done it!!!!

Direct quote from Gordon- "I think everybody thinks I just intentionally went down there and wrecked him, and that's not the case," he insisted. "I wanted to make his life really miserable, and I wanted to make my car really, really wide, but I wasn't expecting him to go diving down the inside on the apron, and when he did, it caused us to hook and caused what ended up being a terrible accident."

I guess you could read that another way... but I tend to trust my eyes and my brain more than that.
