Robby Gordon issue in Montreal Busch Series
 
What do you guys think?
I think Robbie is right...you can clearly see the yellow flag being waived and he was in first, it's not right that NASCAR made him go back in the pack (even though he didn't). I think Robbie won the race too.
What do you guys think?

Here is a link to Robbie's thoughts on this:

It would help if you put a link to the original story (not just Robby's thoughts)

Oh...my bad.
Just assuming everyone knows the story...but I should never assume that.

I couldn't help but notice you didn't give your opinion.

Honestly I didn't really see it so I can't say really. I want to see the highlights and I'm kind of anxious to see what NASCAR has to say.

I think he would have been in much less trouble had he chosen not to do victory burnouts and celebrate as if he had just won the race. Knowing NASCAR, I'm sure they saw that as him trying to show them up.

If they really wanted to punish him they would have suspended him from next week's races at Watkins Glen since that's a road course and Robby Gordon should be one of the favorites there.

I don't think they should have suspended him from the NEXTEL cup series this week. He misbehaved on the Busch series, not nextel.
I just don't get how NASCAR can tell him to go back to 13th when he was in 1st place when the yellow flag came out. Can anyone shed some light on this? Is there some obscure rule I am not familiar with?

Interesting.
Gordon was dead wrong spinning him out and he knows it. Good for him for trying to fix things.
I do feel that Ambrose has had no one pointing their finger at him for spinning out Gordon in the first place. Ambrose did it on purpose if you ask me. If it was me I would want to spin out ambrose too.
