Controversial Crash Ends Bowyer's Shot at Sprint Cup

ap-nascar-charlotte-auto-racing-4 3 r560Clint Bowyer celebrates his win earlier this season at Charlotte Motor Speedway (Photo Credit: Nigel Kinrade, AP)NASCAR had its version of road rage yesterday (SUN) after the Sprint Cup race in Phoenix. Four-time Sprint Cup champion Jeff Gordon intentionally caused Clint Bowyer of Emporia to wreck and ended Bowyer's chance to contend for The Chase championship. Bowyer entered the race third in The Chase standings. After the race, Bowyer said Gordon's actions gave the sport a black eye.

The crews for both race teams scuffled after the race. Penalties are expected to be announced later this week before NASCAR's final race of the season in Homestead, Florida.
