On Pit Road:
Following the late-race incident between Jeff Gordon and Clint Bowyer, there’s been much debate whether NASCAR should take action against Gordon.
There’s no doubt that the move on Bowyer was intentionally taken out by Gordon, he even admitted to it after the chaos was over.
The last time we saw a driver intentionally wreck another was in last November’s Camping World Truck race at Texas Motor Speedway when Kyle Busch turned Ron Hornaday Jr. head-on into the wall under caution.
By now, everyone surely knows that NASCAR opted to park Busch for the remainder of the truck race and left him sitting on the sidelines throughout the weekend.
When Busch was parked, it was the first time NASCAR had taken that kind of action after an on-track incident since Kevin Harvick wrecked Coy Gibbs in a truck race at Martinsville Speedway in 2002 and he was parked for the following days Cup race.
Obviously, there’s a distinct difference in the situation and that is the fact that today’s incident and Bus...

Following retaliation by Jeff Gordon on Clint Bowyer that resulted in a wreck, the pit crews of the two drivers settled things in the garage the ol' fashioned way.
On Sunday, NASCAR stole some headlines from king football. With just two laps to go, Jeff Gordon intentionally took out Clint Bowyer. Bowyer was still in contention for the title and Gordon simply took him out. After this incident happened, things went absolutely batty. After the wreck, Bowyer’s crew went after Gordon’s crew in the [...]
With his No. 15 Toyota still smoking, Clint Bowyer sprinted from his car to the garage to confront Jeff Gordon, who dumped him with two laps remaining in Sunday's Advocare 500.
Bowyer's team already was involved in a brawl before the driver attempted to run up into Gordon's No. 24 hauler, but was held back by NASCAR officials and other team members.

While hockey may still be locked out, NASCAR filled the needs of fighting-starved fans on Sunday at the conclusion of the AdvoCare 500.
Clint Bowyer scraped Jeff Gordon‘s car, and the four-time NASCAR champion was less than pleased. On the second-to-last lap, Gordon directed Bowyer towards the wall, resulting in a crash that caused the race to be finished under caution. Kevin...
Four-time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon avoided suspension Monday when NASCAR instead fined him $100,000 and docked him 25 points for intentionally wrecking Clint Bowyer at Phoenix International Raceway.
Gordon was also placed on probation through Dec. 31. But he'll be allowed to close out the season Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway despite his actions in Sunday's race,...
The fight continues! The most chaotic NASCAR race of the year at Phoenix International Raceway spilled out into the Twitterverse on Sunday, as country music star Blake Shelton's dig on Jeff Gordon brought a swift comeback from Gordon's wife, model and actress Ingrid Vandebosch (though the tweet was apparently later deleted from her account).
Blake Shelton @blakeshelton...
No matter what happens, you don't retaliate with race cars. I said it for years as a crew chief and now for 12 years as a broadcaster.
Well, Sunday at Phoenix International Raceway, Jeff Gordon did just that.
What started out as a personal vendetta against Clint Bowyer affected more than the two of them. I realize that was not the first incident between them when they initially...
Clint Bowyer and Jeff Gordon got tangled up late in today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in Phoenix, and both pit crews were not too pleased. What resulted was an all out brawl between both pit crews. NASCAR! NASCAR! NASCAR! via The Big Lead Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
Clint Bowyer went into Phoenix with a small chance of still being able to win the Sprint Cup Series Championship… but instead left being completely out of contention, -52 points behind leader Brad Keselowski in fourth place. Bowyer finished the race in 28th position. Jeff Gordon and Bowyer got into it during Sunday’s AdvoCare500 at Phoenix International Raceway on lap 305. No...
Apparently Jeff Gordon had enough of Clint Boyer and intentionally wrecked the #15 car in the final laps of the Advocare 500. That led to this melee between the pit crews.

What happened between you and Jeff Gordon?
"I mean the racing -- it's just a shame. The last person in the world you want to get into anything with is Jeff Gordon on the race track. I mean, you're down there racing, the track's extremely slick, we're all on...
It was Jimmie Johnson who last week compared the final two weeks of this Chase of the Championship battle to bare-knuckle fighting.
Unlikely the five-time champ will ever need a side job, but the Psychic Friends Network would be an option.
How angry was everybody after Sunday’s penultimate race at Phoenix? Brad Keselowski let out an expletive-filled postrace rant on the lack of...
With just two races remaining in the NASCAR season and “The Chase,” NASCAR’s equivalent of their playoffs, these should be the fun times – the exciting times. Going into Chase race #9 at Phoenix International Raceway on Sunday, November 11 it certainly was shaping up as an epic season concluding nail-biter much like 2011. (Last…
The AdvoCare500 at Phoenix International Raceway turned into a good old fashioned hockey game with Clint Bowyer's and Jeff Gordon's pit crews going at it.

NASCAR announced their penalties from the actions taken by competitors during Sunday’s AdvoCare 500 from the Phoenix International Raceway. Some of the penalties made sense, some were not as severe as fans would hope, and one was a real head scratcher until you recall an earlier announcement. Without further ado, here are the penalties handed down:
