Gordon, Edwards have discussion after race
Carl Edwards
Jeff Gordon and Carl Edwards didn't expect each other to drive the way they did Sunday night, and both seemed flabbergasted by the other's explanation of their near-crashes at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The two drivers spoke for about five minutes shortly after the race before Gordon walked away. They spoke again briefly in the driver motorhome lot about 15 minutes later and shook hands. While Edwards made a point to say he didn't think the hard feelings would linger, it was obvious that both weren't satisfied with at least the initial discussion. Early in the race, Gordon slid in front of Edwards for position. Edwards and Gordon were later battling side by side and made contact.

"I really felt like he was looking for another excuse to be mad at me," Edwards said. "And I don't understand it. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. That's out of character. We don't have these kind of problems. So we'll just move on and hopefully laugh about it when we're both in the Chase."
Gordon thought Edwards' reaction to the initial slide-job was out of character. "I've never seen him drive me like that," Gordon said. "It was pretty wild. He didn't like that I slid him early in the race. We went into (Turn) 1 and he took my line away to keep me behind him and I was a lot better than him and I just dove inside. Sporting News
