Gordon Gets Fined 10k For Bristol Incident

Well I read in the paper today that Jeff Gordon got fined 10,000 $ and is on probation. Not sure how long his probation is but I didn't think they'd do too much to him.

I think the punishment fits the crime, that was uncalled for.

If you are a true NASCAR fan; you would know that it takes a few minutes to take the helmet off due to the HANS device hooked to the helmet. If you are as upset about a schitty move like what Kenseth put on him; realistically you are going to say "**** this damn thing" and go for it. A Puss would take the time to take off your gear. Its no different than football...If you are in a brawl your coach tells you to keep your gear on; because if you take the time to take off your gear; you arent ready to fight!

and if you are a man, you take your helmet off because if you're gonna get hit, you aren't afraid of your pretty face getting messed up.

Kenseth's move was aggressive driving as far as I'm concerned, Stewart has done way worse. Gordon has also in his career. Jeff should suck it up and take it as two guys going for the same prize and fighting for it.

Ok, so before you brawl; you are gonna say "wait a few, so I can take my gear off"? Nah, you are gonna start swinging, and use what you have to give you the edge to kick ass! YOU ARE SO FULL OF **IT!

LOL

That was the most thing i've seen in a while. I didn't know they had such large helmets, when they showed it on TV, he reminded me of Dark Helmet.

It's also a tax write-off. More like a $5.00 fine.

I'm a huge Gordon fan but this is funny. (taken from NASCAR Power Rankings at Nascar.com)

"A lot of you guys have already emailed and ridiculed Jeff Gordon for keeping his helmet and HANS device on when he shoved Kenseth. That is because that wasn’t Jeff Gordon who shoved Kenseth. It was a stunt double. Gordon was already back in the motorcoach sipping a latte."

That's the same guy that does the flips for Mark Martin.

I wonder what kind of fine Gordon would have received if he would have head-butted Kenseth while he had the helmet on.

Now that would have made for a video clip!

I would have my helmet off if I even considered getting into the fight.

And no, I wouldn't "use what I have to give me the edge." If that was the case, he could justify whipping out a pocket knife to "give him an edge."

watch after races, some racers take ten seconds to remove the helmet.
