Gordon-Bowyer payback never materializes in finale
So seeing them at the front of the field in the closing laps Sunday made everyone wonder what would happen.
It turned out to be much ado about nothing.
“After it was over, I thought, `Wow, I can’t believe we just finished first and second after what happened last week,’” Gordon said.
So all that angst _ as well as any potential payback _ will linger into next season.
“I wouldn’t have took us both out,” Bowyer said. “It’s over. We could have done `what ifs’ last week. I’m done with `what ifs.’”
Gordon also was placed on probation through Dec. 31. But he was allowed to close out the season at Homestead despite his actions, which triggered a fight in the garage area between the drivers’ crews.
“I could tell he was pretty anxious and running hard,” Gordon said. “I had to race with him a couple of times and there were no issues.”
