Gordon really did something classless and it will lose him some respect amongst the pits.
Jeff Gordon has been nothing since Ray Everham left years ago.
Maybe they're also sending a message to Clint and every other driver who acts surprised after a year of wrecking people and thinking it was just racing.
Good call NASCAR, Jeff was on top when this sport went from hill-billy heaven to a mainstream entertainment medium. Coincidence? Perhaps. I chose to think differently. So maybe his last act of defiance/charity will be to fix one part of the sport that's in dire need of fixing.
If he can find a way to fix the points system - making leading laps and winning the race about the only f***ing thing that matters - then we'd be on our way to races that are even better. No hanging back for 350 miles, and winning doubles the points you had int he race up to that point. Do that and you'd see racing from the start.
