FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Jeff Gordon prefers to focus on what happened at Texas last year before his two race-ending crashes and the backstretch brawl with Jeff Burton.
Gordon had led six times for a race-high 124 laps last April at the high-banked 1 1/2-mile track before getting caught up in a spectacular nine-car wreck that took him out with 15 laps left.
Then in November, Burton sent Gordon's car crashing into an outside wall during a caution period.
An angry Gordon walked from the top to the bottom of the track and with both hands pushed Burton hard before taking some swings. The two were separated by NASCAR safety officials.
Gordon says all that's behind him and that he'd rather talk about on the good run he was having in April.
