Jeff Gordon was fuming with Carl Edwards during the AdvoCare 500 in Atlanta on Sunday after the two shared a couple of tight exchanges.
Gordon slid up the track and cut off Edwards for a spot on lap 20. Later in the race, on lap 201, the two rubbed against each other as they were battling for position. Edwards had the inside track when they made contact, which infuriated Gordon.
“Ask the f—ing 99 what his problem is. Somebody needs to explain to that dumb— who the f— does he think he is? That pisses me off right there,” Gordon said over his radio communication.
It’s pretty hypocritical of Gordon to be so upset with Edwards for retaliating after Gordon did the exact same thing to the 99 car earlier in the race.
Gordon finished sixth in the race, while Edwards finished 18th. It looks like they tried talking things out afterwards:

You think they were talking about Subway’s specials for the month of September?
