10:23 AM ET 11.14 | Even after a civil conversation with Jeff Burton about their accident under caution at Texas, Jeff Gordon is not accepting the explanation he was given. "I'm never going to agree with what went on at Texas," Gordon said. "We had a good conversation. I have a lot of respect and I always have and I may have lost some for him, but I still really respect him. It was stupid what he did. You can't get in behind a guy and get caught up in it yourself. That's the part that I'll never understand. "I told him, 'I will never understand how I got wrecked under caution and how you got caught up in it at the same time.' If you are going to wreck somebody, it's easy to do and usually pretty easy to stay out of it yourself."

Is it me or does this read like he doesn't know what he saying. Respect/no respect, understand/don't understand, easy/not easy. I think he was hit in the head a little too hard. Burton must have thumped him pretty good to cause this confusion.

Get over it, Jeff, you're starting to sound a lot like a cry baby. Again.

New story...kinda. Is it just me or does the "big fight" seem to be the new Danica or Jeremy story these days?

Oh and I agree with Rick: get over it Jeff! It happened, he apologized, move on.

T&R has hit a new low for meaningful articles.. this is a rerun. I guess the spammers dont care though

Agree that Jeffypoo (meaning Gordon, would never call Burton that) should get over it...he vented, he pushed, he slapped......now move on.
Personally, I don't understand how/why Burton did this, but don't care enough to ponder it further......I filed it under "a racing moment gone wrong # 5437".

Why is it with all the complaints and reporting of the spammers, they have increased their volumes....what is up with that?

The way it looks to me is they have singled out the Nascar thread to post their junk,and I noticed it's New York NY, thats also the Moderators address also, kinda makes you wonder if THEY are using this thread to sell knock offs and other junk. Just wondering,out loud.

Anyone notice pit selection? The 88 car is just in front of the 11 TURD pit ... looks like HMS team racing. Jr will get to his pit after Hambone -- park shallow ... probably make it difficult for Hambone to exit ...

Earn Taz88 ...I hope you are right (#14) LOL

;)Nova & Mr. Nice...you are both probably right....one thing though, they have increased on the other sights too from what I hear.

Enjoy the race everyone.

The 88 will be a non factor as he's been for the last 6 years. No surprise there given that he's driving one of them cheap Mexican Chebies.

Looky looky here- Rexy just crawled out from under her rock ...

Why is this even a a topic a week later.

Sup tard? How's your loser driver doin? Oh yeah, he's running in 20th place which is pretty good for him. Any idea who's winning?

We would have expected a much better response than that feckless attempt ... sounds like about 13 years old -- does the warden know your goofin' off again instead of cleaning your cell?

Has everyone ever noticed that every time Rex Racer comes on the T*R he or she NEVER comments on topic,?? just comes on and starts crap, talk about a loser. Frigging creep.

Good Race, Hamlin still has the points lead, but not by much, the last race is going to be a dusey, I myself can't wait. Good evening everyone.
