Every year at this time, NASCAR fans wonder if a driver that is not in the chase is going to get in the way of the 12 that are in the chase and cost someone a championship.

Well, it finally happened and it wasn't a driver that was not in the chase. It was someone that is in the chase and it was none other than 4-Time Champion, Jeff Gordon.

Gordon not only wrecked Clint Bowyer but he wrecked his championship hopes as well.

This has to be not only one of the craziest things you will ever see, it is as close to the old Saturday night races in south that you will ever see as well.
