It was quite a day for race fans at the Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday as they witnessed NASCARâ€™s Jeff Gordon and Jeff Burton fight and it got physical. Find out what Burton did to set off Gordon as well as check out the video of these two in a heated exchange.
NASCARâ€™s Jeff Gordon and Jeff Burton fight broke out at Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday. So what happened that caused Gordon to come at Burton and shove him? Well according to Burton he was attempting to drive his car up next to Gordonâ€™s to apologize for something that had happened earlier in the race.
However something clearly went wrong because Burton ended up driving into the back of Gordonâ€™s car pushing it into the wall. As you can imagine Jeff G. was none too pleased when this happened and later went up to Jeff B. got in his face. There was some shoving involved to but if you watch the video below you can see there are race officials there that quickly separated the feuding men.
Burton has taken full responsibility for what happened on and off the track admitting it was his fault and apologizing for it. Will the two keep this feud alive, not likely. The usually very rational and level headed Gordon has said it is over but he also said he has lost respect for Burton.
Jeff Gordon and Jeff Burton’s fight is quite the story however is it all that dramatic not really. I mean what sport doesnâ€™t have a couple of people throwing down from time to time, seriously that is pretty much what makes people love Hockey right?. I personally think this is making headlines because Gordon, who is a fan favorite in the racing world was involved. That is of course just my two cents on the subject let me know what you think about these two drivers coming to blows.
