jeff gordon fightNASCAR was quite entertaining yesterday at the Texas Motor Speedway when Jeff Gordon decided to fight Jeff Burton.

Fight and NASCAR are usually something you do not see in the same sentence, that is until yesterday. At the AAA Texas 500, which took place at the Texas Motor Speedway, Jeff Gordon decided to take a long walk down the track and fight Jeff Burton.

Jeff Gordon?! Yes, Mr. Rainbow Warrior himself actually grew a pair of testicles yesterday and engaged in a fight with Jeff Burton. Trust me, I was as shocked as you all probably were when I saw it happen live. The best thing is, after the shoving match, Gordon and Burton had to ride in the same ambulance!

It all happened under caution on lap 192, Jeff Burton (who claims it was unintentional and takes full responsibilty) wrecked the no. 24 car of Jeff Gordon. Once free of his mangled car, Gordon proceeded down the track to greet Jeff Burton, who just took him out of the race. After a few shoves, the Gordon-Burton fight was split up by NASCAR officials and that was the end of it. There really were no punches thrown but to see Jeff Gordon grow a pair and shove Burton, was priceless.

In an interview after the whole debacle, Jeff Burton said that he understands why Gordon was so pissed off. He takes full responsibility for the crash and does not hold the hostility against Jeff Gordon. Gordon went on to  say that he lost a tremendous amount of respect for his fellow NASCAR driver, Jeff Burton.

Oh and in case you were wondering, Denny Hamlin won the AAA Texas 500 at the Texas Motor Speedway.
