NASCAR Pure Michigan 400 Results: Jeff Gordon Unhappy With Dale Earnhardt

Following the conclusion of the NASCAR Pure Michigan 400 on Sunday, Jeff Gordon was not happy with Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his racing tactics. Here is what Gordon had to say on a radio show following the conclusion of the race.

"Tell the f------ 88 he can thank me later for not wrecking him," Gordon said on his radio during the race. "That was f------ stupid."

Earnhardt had moved in front of Gordon midway through the race with a pass Gordon felt was a little risky. But Earnhardt was shocked when he heard Gordon's reaction.

"What's the deal with the 24?" Earnhardt said on his radio after passing Gordon. "Does he have a problem with me?"

Crew chief Steve Letarte told Earnhardt that Gordon said he should have wrecked him.

"Wrecked me?!" Earnhardt yelled. "He was slower than me. I don't know what I did, but I'm sorry if I did something."

H/T ESPN for the quotes.

It'll be interesting to see the fallout from Gordon's tirade in the coming days.
