CHICAGO (AP) - Jeff Gordon wonders if Richard Childress Racing intentionally caused a caution at Richmond to help Kevin Harvick win that race.
Gordon was leading Harvick in Saturday night's race when RCR driver Paul Menard spun with 16 laps to go. Gordon and Harvick lined up 1-2 on the restart four laps later, Harvick took the lead and went on to win his fourth race of the season.
Gordon questioned after the race if Menard spun on purpose, and said Thursday speculation has continued that RCR ordered its driver to bring out the caution.
Harvick said he's asked the team and was told Menard had a legitimate tire problem. An RCR spokesman says the organization has no comment.
