Watch the crews of Jeff Gordon and Clint Bowyer fight after wreck

November 12, 2012|By Houston Mitchell

An ugly scene took place Sunday when the crews of Jeff Gordon and Clint Bowyer came to blows after Gordon put Bowyer's car into the wall during the AdvoCare 500 in Avondale, Ariz.

As Times NASCAR writer Jim Peltz wrote,

"By the time the smoke literally cleared and Kevin Harvick had won the race, the sellout crowd of 87,000 had witnessed the following:

"—Jeff Gordon being shoved away for his safety as his crew members and those of Clint Bowyer brawled in the garage after Gordon intentionally wrecked Bowyer.

"—A furious Bowyer charging toward Gordon's transporter truck in search of Gordon until Bowyer was restrained.

"—Several cars, including Danica Patrick's, spinning and crashing behind Harvick as they all crossed under the checkered flag in a two-lap overtime finish.

"—And another wreck that had seriously damaged Johnson's hopes for a sixth championship.

"There at the end, I've never seen a finish like that, ever," Carl Edwards said after finishing 11th. "It was just chaos."
