      Tony Stewart and Jeff Gordon are two drivers who have been rivals since 2000. Its obvious after the 400 who wants a another championship more, Tony Stewart. This is coming from a Gordon fan that I feel Jeff has lost that passion to stay up front unlike his counterpart Tony Stewart who stayed up front all race avoiding the big wreck which should give Jeff a little advise for the future, "If you want the championship, you need to run harder, so stay up front at RP races." 

    The Jeff Gordon that needs to show up at other races is the one that put Matt Kenseth in the wall two years ago to win at Chicagoland (coincidence anyone?), not the one that drives cars like Tony Dungy making plays during the postseason. Tony winning the 400 the way he did is the way a champion should be, he shouldn't care who the leader is if you are in my way with one lap to go with championship on the line, sorry, I gotta put your ass in the wall.
