Hello, I enjoyed your piece on Jeff Burton. Im an old fan of of stockcar racing and have utmost respect for both Jeffs. What happened Sunday created a tight place for both drivers, good to see Gordon lose his cool, the sport does need more of that activity. Im from a time in NASCAR history when drivers showed emotions and often took to fist city to express themselves and the anger that was ruling the thinking process at that moment. I have always liked that aspect of stockcar racing! But my opinion is that Gordon ought to think about who he is dealing with. He has raced Burton for many many years, Burton is viewed by all as a good clean driver, an old pro that everybody trusts. He made a mistake and admitted his wrong, Gordon needs to retract his respect comment about Burton and apologize to him. If what happened Sunday between two competitors of many years is all it takes for Gordon to lose respect, then for real, somebody needs therapy!!! Cmon Gordon, he said he was wrong and said he was sorry, what more do you need? Remember its Jeff Burton, a guy you have raced many times without any troubles. If Gordon cant let this go and be a racer about it then I just might have some respect go missing for him. Again good writing, I will look for your articles in the future!........Stagelights and Peacepipes..........SWard
