I have thought for some time now that Mr. Gordon has some very serious emotional, or mental issues that need to be addressed professionaly before he should be allowed to return to competition. It's very sad a few years ago he had a very promising career.

Yes indeed. At least grow up a little. I dont think i have ever seen a worse case of dummy spitting in motor sport. We maybe Alonso idiotic time wasting in the pits during the latest qualifying, that cost him the pole and maclaren constructor points for the race, he should face it Hamilton is just better than him.

What did I miss? Which Mr. Gordon are you referring to? I went to to my local race track today, to watch the racing. I watched the ARCA race, then switched the the busch race in Canada.

Oh you are talking about Robbie Gordon, who has little respect for any driver on any circut of Nascar sanctioned races.

I guess I won't say anymore since I did not view the end of the race myself.

Getting touched and spun is one thing, but to disregaurd race officals and ram the other driver off shows complete disregard for the sport. Gordon should learn to take it on the chin, he wouldnt last one season in V8 supercars in Australia. He would be lucky to be in the series at all after a brain explosion like that one.

This was far from the first incident like this where R. Gordon does whatever he pleases and ignores nascar officials , I can think of a few other incidents like this , he is washed up & knows it , this is his only recourse to get headlines...he should have been gone at least a year or two ago...My opinion

Robby should not be alowed to race again in the Busch series .... that is the worst case of bad sportsmanship I have seen in all the time I have been watching the series and following Marcos this year !I had a very high opinion of Busch cup until today ....Why did the officials restart the race when it was obvious Robby was going to take him out ? Marcos was the class act all day and has now earnt his place in the series

This doesn't surprise me in the least. Forget who the drivers are. Just notice the lack of consistency. One driver knocks another driver out of the way intentionally-no penalty another driver knocks that same driver out of the way and gets penalized. Nascar has a habit of making up rules as they go. This is why nascar has serious credibilty problems.

Way to go Robby! The the camera angle at the turn where he was spun out clearly shows he had the lead and they were clearly under yellow. Nice job NASCAR you should deffinately stick to ovals, you obviously can't officiate a road course.

NASCAR hicks will suspend someone for celebration?

I don't like Robby Gordon, never have. That said, NASCAR screwed him. A driver gets spun under caution and nothing happens to the driver doing the hitting. They then can't figure out where to put the driver that got spun. Then they start the race with cars out of order. Longtime NASCAR fan but every weekend I am a little less to the point that I don't even care if I watch the races. NASCAR reached their pinnacle and it's now on a downward slide. Thanks Brian France, you're not your Daddy or Grand Daddy.....

Gordon is a one man team, he's toast. It would be different if he were one of the big teams. If he was Jr, they would have given him the race and called him "The Intimidator." Gordon has real talent, but the reality he sees through his beer goggles isn't NASCAR's reality.

Once again, further proof that Nascar doesn't even understand it's own stupid "rules". If the rule is that the field is fixed when the yellow comes out, then it's fixed. PERIOD!! For anyone paying attention, Nascar has a history of changing "rules" when the situation fits THEM!
Don't blame Robby for this, blame

Wonder why Harvick gets away with rough driving and then cries when someone taps him off the track. Even Junior doesn't get such lack of punishment.

Nascar officials totally lost control of this race in he final laps. They should go back to vidio replay and right there wrong. Ambrose should be declared the winner since he was purposely stocked to knock him out of the race

I told you so several weeks ago on a downhill slide, they have ruined the sport. You can't choose your winners and keep your credibility.
