In one of the more surreal scenes in recent NASCAR memory, Jeff Gordon and Clint Bowyer set off a sequence of events during the Sunday Phoenix race that could have repercussions not just for next week, but for next season and the Sprint Cup championship.

I was just at this race today so I got to see it play out live and in person. First of all, congrats to Kevin Harvick and Richard Childress, secondly, I hope Nascar suspends Gordon for the final race and severely fines him.

Here comes the lame joke from me, you went to a Nascar race and a Hockey game broke out! (just kidding)

How many times does Booyah Bowyer have to wreck JG before it’s OK to retaliate?

I don’t really watch NASCAR, but in looking at the clip, Gordon took out two other drivers (?) in addition to Bowyer?

If he was flagged to go off and didn’t, he possibly could have caused injury to other drivers with the on purpose stuff.

To me it looked like the 15 drove up into the 24. I must have missed something.

They’ve been feuding all season long, starting when Bowyer took out Jeff (who was leading) at the end of the first Martinsville race.

Not this race, its not up to Jeff Gordon to decide the Cup. Hope Bowyer wrecks JJ next week

I think the Bradster has it covered. Bowyer was racing for 3rd in the championship.

Great example for young people. If you want to settle scores, do it after the race one on one in private.

Well Jeff: Acting like Danica Patrick isn’t a real smart thing to do.

It did not look like that to me. I watched the first contact 3-4 times and it looked like Bowyer held his line and Gordon came down the track into him.

Dale Sr. would never have done what Gordon did. He would have gone over to his hauler and punched his lights out. Not destroy equipment. It was hard racing, you want to win. Dale was guilty of many of those accusations and he took em in stride that’s what made him GREAT!

Watch the tape again. Just as Bowyer came alongside Gordon, Bowyer’s car either came loose or he intentionally swerved, and Bowyer’s car RAN INTO GORDON’S! They BOTH then took out 2 other cars and then a 5th plowed into that pile of 4.

Even if Gordon had run into Bowyer, I think he had grounds.

Don’t be surprised if Vince McMahon comes up with something. :)

Caught the last 40 laps...had that JG retaliation taken out Keselowski...there might have been a riot.

...an Ol' Skool NASCAR finish(and aftermath).

...that was cool.

I don’t watch NASCAR or keep up with it. I’m only commenting on the actual fighting - not the possibility of deliberate wrecking.

Some say things like this make NASCAR look like a bunch of retards but, you know, it honestly doesn’t bother me at all. I kind of like the fact that at least these guys still have enough gonads to get into a fist fight once in awhile. I don’t like gratuitous violence but, dammit, sometimes a guy just needs an a**whoopin’. There’s too much wussiness going around these days.
