  1. I wanted to suggest this information for your evaluation. When Kyle Bush took out Ron Hornaday, As I recall taking away his championship hopes. Nascar grounded Kyle Bush for either 2 or 3 weeks...along with anger management classes?
    I have watched Nascar since it was on tv in black and white. What I saw today was Jeff Gordon acting like a spoiled child who can't win at some game. I remember many great drivers who are now dead or injured to a point that they never have driven since. Most of these were racing accidents. When a driver uses his car to is the same as wildly pointing a loaded gun at not just one driver...but many drivers and even spectators in the stands.
    If I was Nascar.....I would fine Jeff Gordon $3 Million dollars and take away all of his points for the season, putting him in last place and not allowing him to race and ground him until February 2013.
    I have watch you race and Jeff Gordon race since you both began. What Jeff did today set the Nascar sport back in the minds of Viewers. He displayed an image of NASCAR unfitting and damaging. Just because Jeff....can't win like the #48 team does, doesn't gives him not right to take it out on any driver or the sport.
    If NASCAR on Tuesday doesn't announce the most serious fine and punishment ever recorded, then all supporters of the sport will see the bias and special treatment that Jeff has had many times in his career.
    I no longer consider #24 a champion. He is a sore loser and spoiled brat....who could have killed someone today....then said, I had a tire go down and lost control when I hit the #15. I am sicked by his actions and the damage he has done to a progressive auto sport. I saw nothing that the other driver did that warranted retaliation or endangering peoples lives. If Gordon want to be so tuff.....Challenge #15 to a fist fight with gloves....or I could say a Dueling match with guns. But then killing someone would be as stupid as what Gordon did today. J.M.H.O. Feel free to use my opinion on any of your programing.
