Wow, I have been watching the wrong sports all these years. I am not a huge fan of Nascar, but knowing that this is how they get down that might have to change.  Apparently this is the story behind the fight… Jeff Gordon, who I always considered the golden boy of Nascar, was fed up with Clint Bowyer messing with him during races so he finally retaliated.  So this prompted Jeff to purposely crash into Bowyer’s car so he would not qualify for the championship.  While Jeff’s mindset might make sense, his actions were plain stupid.  They both look ridiculous running around and fighting, but it did make for great television.  They turned me into a viewer.  Don’t get me wrong I don’t condone violence and I am glad no one was hurt.   It appears that Jeff Gordon will be docked 25 points, fined $100,000, and put on probation for the rest of the season.  Sounds like a fair punishment.
