The crew teams belonging to Jeff Gordon and Clint Bowyer were quite upset at each other after their leading men were unable to make more left turns Sunday. It started when Bowyer clipped Gordon earlier in the AdvoCare 500. Gordon decided his Sunday drive was over so he took out Bowyer, ending both of their days.
Gordon was upset with prior incidents involving Bowyer. ”It’s just things have gotten escalated over the year and I’ve just had it,” Gordon said Sunday after meeting with NASCAR officials. “Clint’s run into me numerous time, wrecked me and he got into me on the back straightaway and pretty much ruined our day. I’ve had it and was fed up with it and got him back.”
As Gordon was getting out of his car, the two crews were already engaged in their brewhaha. Bowyer rushed over, presumably to get a piece of Gordon. All in all, it was a bunch of hairpulling and namecalling. But regardless, it was a nice change-up for the left turns.
