FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -An angry Jeff Gordon hit Jeff Burton with a hard two-handed push after Burton sent Gordon's car crashing into the outside wall during a caution period.
After getting out of his No. 24 car, Gordon walked from the top to the bottom of the track to confront Burton. Gordon shoved Burton, then took some swings before they were separated by two NASCAR safety officials.
The drivers then rode together in ambulance to the infield-care area.
Burton took full responsibility for the accident Sunday and said he had no problem with what Gordon did.
Right before the caution came out for another problem on the track, Burton said Gordon drove under him in Turn 4, where it was difficult to see because of the setting sun.
Burton said he know Gordon was mad and was trying to pull up next to him to acknowledge his mistake. Instead, as Burton came up from behind in Turn 2, their cars hit and crashed.
