Alright we all saw the Busch race so here's the Robby Gordon haters thread. Robby is a douche plain and simple. First off he ignored NASCARs warning to line up behind the 33 car which was back in about 12th or so. Then on the restart he takes out Marcos Ambrose on purpose and ruins his chances of winning when he clearly had that race won and should be the one in victory lane and not Harvick. Robby Gordon makes Tony Stewart look like a genius after pulling that stupid shit he just did. Robby just sent himself to #1 on my list of most hated drivers and it's going to take a long long time for him to fall to #2 which is where Stewart currently sits. Enjoy it Robby because you're now on a lot of people's shit list!

I've hated him ever since the 2001 Daytona 500. He's a prick on the track (and off of it from what I've heard, but haven't personally witnessed). He should be parked for Pocono. Unsportsmanlike conduct. The penalty SHOULD translate to the Cup Series because 1. Robby doesn't run many Busch races and 2. it hurts more. Hope every one of your engines blow for the rest of the season!

Well my input, Robby being one of my favorites. I'm only pissed he didn't listen to Nascar and go to the back, he was just asking for a suspension. I don't blame him for getting Ambrose back one bit, if it was on purpose or not, most any driver will lose his temper and look for payback, though Robby should have just backed off and let it go, its a Busch race, he isn't running for points, just take the penalty and after the race give Ambrose a rub to show your not happy or talk to him after the race about it.

Never really liked Robby, But I loved the ending of the race!! It made for some real excitement!! Bet I will be tuning into BUSCH more often if they raced like that more often instead of the round in circle bullshit we normally see that NASCAR seems mor often than not wanting to lean toward!!!!!

I don't blame Robby one bit for what he did-- Ambrose deserved it for spinning him out under the caution. Payback's a bitch!!!!

The point is Robby was ordered by NASCAR to drop in behind the 33 car and he refused to do so. And we all know that when NASCAR says something they mean business and you don't fuck with them if they hand out a penalty to you on the track. If Robby had an issue he should take it up with NASCAR but as far as we are all concerned Robby was not in 2nd place at the time of the restart because of Ambrose spinning Robby around and NASCAR assigning him to the 12th position. In that situation Robby was the equivalent of a lapped car being far too aggressive with the leaders in the closing laps. That's how it is in mine and NASCARs eyes. And what Robby did really showed a lack of well anything. Robby wasn't racing for the win at that point. He was racing to get payback and if you do that in the beginning to middle part of the race people shrug it off as a racing deal but when you do it in the last 5 laps it's obvious your intentions.

kinda funny when i talked to you about it and gave it to you as "what if it would have been Harvick he took out at the end and took his chances of a win, you had a different tune, lol.

like i said earlier i think that it was a bonehead move on his part to do it.

do i blame him for doing it? .....no, because i know he was pissed. but that still dont give him the right to f*ck up someone elses chances of getting a win. he still should have done what Nascar had ordered him to do. he would have at least got a better finish that what he got.

i also dont blame this just on Robby. i also blame it on Nascar for knowing what he was going to do and not just parking the whole feild and escorting his car off the track.

i knew Robby was going to do it before the last yellow flag when Robby and Ambrose got into it and cause all of this. when Robby finally made it to second and the caution came out, Fellows and his crew chief were talking and Ron had said that he was going to have to try and run hard to get to the front since he was in third and his crew chief sadi to not worry about it because Robby was going to "rough up the #59". now was that a sign that he already knew what Robby was going to do before the pile up and the spinning out that was going to happen about a lap later? was there already word out that Gordon was going to as the crew chief said and rough him up? or was it that everyone know how Robby is?

Heres how I see it also, pretty much any driver would have done what Robby did, every driver snaps once in a while, but I think Robby snapped a bit too much. I know pretty much for a fact if Harvick, Stewart, the Busch brothers, and a few others would have all done what Robby did, they would have ignored Nascar and they would have gotten their payback. I have heard that Ambroses quarter panel was torn up some, of course from Robby battling him, but do you really think when someone is going for their first win, like Ambrose, was is going to just give up the lead with a handful of laps left, and do you really think Robby Gordon of all people is going to just let someone win without putting up a fight? So of course to get by, Robby had to rub Ambrose and bump him, but Robby didn't spin Ambrose. I think when Ambrose spun Robby he was caught up in the moment and was upset Robby had to pass him by bumping and rubbing and all that. Of course I also don't think Robby should have gotten Ambrose back the way he did, he should have just gone back to 12th like Nascar said, cool off some, then let Ambrose know how he feels after the race. I don't think anything would have changed even if Robby was suppose to restart 2nd anyways, either way Ambrose was going to get what Robby thought he deserved, even if Robby had to ignore Nascar just like he did. Its just another case where close racing and beating and banging for the lead turned into angry drivers caught up in the moment doing things they will regret.

well thats the thing Trevor, all of them have done it and not all of it cared for: Stewart spinning Edwards and then Edwards spinning him back out, Jeff Kenseth spinning Gordon and then Gordon pushing Kenseth and then fast forward some races and Gordon got his revenge back on Kenseth by spinning him out, and then Harvick and Kyle Busch spinning and harvick tring to "murder" him on the track.. Hell look back at Daytona with Stewart and Kenseth beating and banging, it does happen. But at the same time when Nascar told them to take a black flag lap or they were warned to not do it again........they stopped, where as Robby didnt. that is the main point. like i said it was heat of the moment but the moment had passed because they had to run several caution laps to try and figure the running order and hell the whole time Robby was hitting Ambrose in the back. Like i said nascar should have parked the whole field and delt with Robby. I cant think of another time since i have been watching that a driver has been this blatant about not listening to the Nascar officials. I guess we will see where it all goes.

Yeah, I agree that Nascar didn't do the best job trying to prevent Robby for getting his revenge. The entire thing could have easily been avoided, but we can't change it now, Robby is bound to have a penalty waiting for him and Ambrose will have to hold off his first win hopes a bit longer.

I have a feeling stopping the field wouldn't have been a great idea either. So okay they stop the field, now what? Talk to Robby for a long while and convince him hes not the leader?

no but when they are about to go green and they know he aint going to give it up, then they should have continued the caution until he got in line or they should have parked the field and if he didnt get off the field on his own then haul his car off the field. sad thing is that if this keeps happening, i see a day where Nascar will put in kill switches like they put in the monster trucks. and when a driver wont comply with the rules of get back in position then they kill his engine and he has no choice.

Yeah I highly doubt they would tow his car off unless they surrounded it with like guards and offcials lol

Though the remote killswitch idea is the best one I heard all the day lol

Hell if anything Nascar has to hold some responsibility one, I realize Robby should be mature enough to listen to Nascar, but Nascar in my opinion could have stopped the whole field and did what it needed to do. I think that was Robby's race, he was in first when the caution came out. This is all my opinion.
