Hendrick says Gordon was robbed........

Hendrick says Gordon was 'robbed': Hendrick Motorsports team owner Rick Hendrick said he was just as mad as his driver, #24-Jeff Gordon, over the penalties NASCAR handed down Monday night regarding Michael Waltrip Racing's attempt to manipulate the outcome of Saturday night's race at Richmond, Va. Hendrick went on to say, "Jeff Gordon got robbed. On to the Chase and try to win it." Gordon, and his wife, Ingrid Vandebosch, posted several messages on Twitter following NASCAR's announcement expressing their displeasure with the decision. Gordon was in position to make the Chase in the closing laps by finishing in the Top 10 in points but with MWR's cars pitting and pulling off the track and losing positions Joey Logano ended up with claiming a position in the Top 10, leaving Gordon out. Gordon went on to say, even he was taken out of the equation, he didn't agree with NASCAR effectively allowing Bowyer to contend for the series championship with no further penalty.(Charlotte Observer)(9-11-2013)



He sure was.......I was wondering why Hendrick did not say anything.....NASCAR needs to make this right too. NASCAR either make this right or Hendrick needs to start making Jeff enough cars to take the matter in his own hands....this whole mess is getting worse by the day.... :( They need to add Jeff to the Chase....period!

Re: Hendrick says Gordon was robbed........

I personally don't think Jeff deserves to be in the chase. Hasn't done much all year and the last time he raced his way in, he was just filler. I don't condone what was done last weekend but don't much care about team orders... Happens all the time in F1 and I'm sure it's happened in NASCRAP before too, just not so blatant or at such a crucial time. Sorry, but if the VP of my company tells me to do something, I'm doing it. I'm glad Ryan is in the chase but all this hoopla has overshadowed the announcement of him going to the 31 next year. All NASCRAP has to do is get rid of this chase crap and make the wins worth more, then they'll have their champion. But that's my opinion, for what it's worth...

I'm all for getting rid of the chase.

but to the subject. I love when a team owner comes to the defense of a driver that has been wronged. I give kudos to Mr. H. he didnt mix words & try to be PC. He flat told nascar (& whoever else listening) Gordon was robbed. I like that. it may not do any good, but it is nice when an owner speaks up for their driver. (unlike some companies)

I am not talking behind closed doors. You think Nascar feels pressure when things are said behind closed doors?

The only person that ever robbed Jeff Gordon was his first wife, Brooke. ;)

I don't think Brooke robbed Jeff. If he didn't have a prenup it was his own fault.
