Jeff Gordon was fined $100,000 and docked 25 Sprint Cup points on Monday for intentionally wrecking Clint Bowyer during Sunday’s AdvoCare 500 in Phoenix.
Gordon was running 20th with two laps to go when he decided to bump Bowyer, causing the No. 15 car to spin out. Bowyer slipped to a 28th-place finish while Gordon was 30th. Being spun out was also costly for Bowyer, who dropped to fourth in the Sprint Cup standings, 52 points behind Brad Keselowksi entering Sunday’s finale at Homestead.
The best part about wrecking Bowyer and causing the ensuing brawl is that Gordon didn’t regret any of it.
“Things have gotten escalated over the year and I have just had it. Clint (Bowyer) has run into me numerous times, wrecked me and he got into me on the back straightaway, pretty much ruined our day. I have had it, was fed up with it and got him back,” Gordon said.
Some people thought Gordon’s actions were in pretty poor taste, but not us. They were awesome. Any time a full-on brawl like that is incited, we’re definitely fans. Seriously, when’s the last time you saw a pit-clearing brawl among drivers and their teams? And what about Bowyer literally sprinting through the track to the garage to get in on the action? How great was that? This was just a priceless moment in NASCAR history. Gordon shouldn’t be embarrassed; he should be proud.
