Kenseth is a poor loser. He slowed down and got hit and that is racing. Why does everyone make a big deal when it is Jeff Gordon? Tony Stewart wipes out people all the time and no one says anything. Racing is racing and if one doesn't like it stay home or don't watch. Jeff got a bad deal when he pushed Kenseth. Kenseth should have stayed in his car. Does anyone really believe he was concerned about spinning Jeff out then. It's easier to blame Jeff for everything because the fans want Jeff blamed.

I agree with you stoltz61, Kenseth is a poor loser. He even sd earlier that his car wasn't good enough to win the race but he would try to get what he can. He knew Jeff's car was better than his. Its obvious after seeing the replay that it looked almost like Kenseth "backed up" into Jeff. What was Jeff to do, he stepped on the gas and Kenseth, well, not sure what he did, either he didn't or his car just didn't take off like Jeff's did. Deal with the facts Matt!

I agree with you that when Tony hits people,nobody says a word but when Jeff even just rubs someone, they all become vocal all of a sudden. Go Jeff!!!!!

U know One thing i dont understand is how Gordon can get away with al;l the crap he does.If someone would have done that to him he would have done nothing but cry about it like hes does every time.But yet when he does it it wasnt his fault and he didnt mean do.BULLCRAP,Nascar is so far up Gordons butt itrs pitiful.Some like stewart or Harvick did that there would be a fine,but Jeff can do whatever he wants.I dont care if he ends up passing earnhardt or not cause he is no where near as good as Dale Earnhardt and never will be.The only reason hes even near his wins is caused The intimidator is dead.

Two points to make.
First Gordon had almost 50 wins And 3 championships when Dale Sr.
was killed. Also you were the same people who would jump for joy
when your man Earnhardt spun someone out . PS use your spell
check.

Drivers that knock others out to gain a win, are not racers. It is clear that NASCAR approves of this direspectful attitude of their drivers. Jeff Gordon should instead be fined $100,000.00 and the race taken waway from him. I've see a driver penalized for bumping someone (Dale, Jr.), but to win it is alloed? I believe NACAR is loosing ground.

WAA WAA WAA. IF YOU CAN'T TAKE THE HEAT STAY THE HELL OUT OF THE KITCHEN. IT'S CALLED RACING DUDE. SOMETIMES YOU'RE THE BUG, SOMETIMES YOU'RE THE WINSHIELD. LAST TIME JEFF WAS THE BUG, TODAY HE WAS THE WINDSHIELD. I BET YOUR CRY BABY ASS WASN'T COMPLAINING WHEN KENSETH TOOK JEFF OUT THE SAME WAY AT BRISTOL. YOUR VERSION OF THE STORY THEN WAS IT WAS JUST HARD RACING. SOMETIMES IT'S BEST JUST TO TRY TO OUT RUN THE OTHER FELLOW THAN ALL THE BLOCKING AND BRAKE CHECKING. IT TICKLED THE HELL OUT OF ME.

It took the late earnhardt more years to get to 76 than Jeff Gordon, and nascar is alot more competative than in earnhardts day.

Really 75 races won and that is the only way he can win, I find that very hard to believe. Face it Jeff is a great driver for an even better Team in HMS. He will go down in history as one of the best drviers EVER, because of 2 things his determination and the victories that he will finish with.

Have you ever watched a race, the late Dale Sr. raced liked that all of the time, and he admitted to it.

HE'S GETTING AWAY WITH IT FOR THE SAME REASON KENSETH GOT AWAY WITH DOING THE SAME THING TO HIM AT BRISTOL, IT'S CALLED RACING. THE IDEA IS TO OUTRUN THE FELLOW BEHIND YOU AND WHEN YOU CAN'T AND YOU'RE BLOCKING TRYING TO WIN, EXPECT TO GET DROP KICKED. IT REALLY PISSES YOU REDNECKS OFF FOR A KID TO COME OUT OF CALIFORNIA AND KICK YOUR GOOD OLE BOYS BUTTS DON'T IT? AND IF YOU KNEW SHIT ABOUT NASCAR YOU WOULD KNOW JEFF WON A HELL OF A LOT MORE RACES WHILE DALE WAS ALIVE THAN HE HAS SINCE DALE DIED. YOU WIMPS ARE REALLY GOING TO BE CRYING IN YOUR BEER NEXT YEAR IF MONTOYA GETS HOT. JEFF MADE ME PROUD OF HIM TODAY. I CAN'T WAIT TILL HE STICKS BIFFLES ASS IN THE FENCE SOMEWHERE.

Wow, ya'll gotta take off them Rose Colored Glasses and see the whole picture. Yes, Jeff was catching Matt but, he was doing so in the high line. He didn't run the low line until turns one and two. Had he waited, he would have got by Matt thru turns three and four. His bump on Matt was intentional and not necessary. Matt didn’t slow up coming off turn two, he just wasn’t able to get back in the gas as soon as Jeff because he was pushing up off the corner. It’s Jeff’s responsibility to pass the car ahead of him, not wreck the car to get by. If you all are insinuating that it’s ok to wreck a car to get past them, I hope you don’t run to slow on the drive home tonight ... I’d hate for someone faster than you to come up behind. There’s one for you to try …‘Officer, I wrecked him because he was slower than me and I wanted to get by.” Good luck.

Jeff is in desperation mode. If he doesn’t make the chase this year he’s gonna catch hell from his sponsors. Make it at all costs eh?

On the other hand ... thanks Jeff! In the big picture Matt would have run out of gas under green loosing several laps and dropping him back to 30th or worse. As it was, the caution got Matt into the pits and save a few spots. DOH!

A bump at Bristol is a whole lot different than a punt at Chicago. Look at the hits. Matt’s bump on Jeff at Bristol was square, Jeff’s punt on Matt at Chicago was in the left rear, only used to spin a car. Matt admitted his error at Bristol ... remind me again of Jeff’s take on his actions in Chicago?

He's still a loser. I don't like ANY of them wrecking people to get ahead, not just Gordo. It's just stupid and lazy. I can see that crap on my morning commute.
