Jeff Gordon cusses out Carl Edwards on his radio

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:

Jeff Gordon fined $100,000 for going nuts on Clint Bowyer (Video)

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.

Jeff Gordon Goes After Jeff Burton (Video)

Martin Truex Jr. rubbed up against the wall and brought out the caution flag at Texas on Sunday. The delay in the action resulted in even bigger problems for two of the drivers. Jeff Burton was trying to pull up next to Jeff Gordon to apologize for being too aggressive just before the caution came out, but he wound up hitting Gordon and knocking the 24 out of the race. Gordon was understandably pissed and went after Burton as soon as they got out of their cars:

Gordon slipped to 6th in the Chase standings after the poor finish while Burton fell two spots to dead last. And wouldn’t you know, it’s now Denny Hamlin leading the Chase for a change, not Jimmie Johnson. If there’s something with which we can all get down, it’s definitely seeing two drivers go at it. And maybe seeing someone else win the Chase would be nice too.
