Gordon and Busch get into it after Coke 600

Jeff Gordon and kyle BuschFormer Hendrick Motorsports teammates Kyle Busch and Jeff Gordon had a brief conversation after the Coca-Cola 600 after Busch was apparently upset with how hard Gordon was racing him.

Busch refused to answer a question about it in his postrace news conference, saying the conversation would remain quiet. But Gordon, who finished one position behind Joe Gibbs Racing’s Busch in fourth, didn’t.

“He’s got an issue because he gave me the finger, and you know what?” Gordon said. “That’s not necessary for a guy he just didn’t like racing him the way I did.”

Gordon and Busch were teammates at Hendrick before Busch left for JGR this season.

“Kyle and I never had any issues,” Gordon said. “But I raced him hard tonight just like I did everybody. And when track position is as important as it is here, you’ve got to race every single car for every single position.

“And I wasn’t going to give anybody an inch, and I was racing for position.”
