#4 throwing trash at Jeff Gordon during after his 77th win.
Its understandable that NASCAR fans would be a little upset after watching Jeff Gordon surpass Dale Earnhardt on the all time win list, but to disrespect him in the way that they did was uncalled for. Of course Gordon gaining the victory at a track like Talladega superspeedway, which was arguably Dale Earnhardt’s best track, only added salt to the wound, but was still uncalled for.
In the end, NASCAR probably made a bad decision by calling the race after only one caution and could have tried to finish the race one more time under green given the importance of the possible victory. With that being said and Gordon’s impact on the sport of NASCAR as a whole, fans should have given him a lot more respect then what they ultimately did.
