Motorsports: Kerr at heart of new Chase controversy

Former Valley resident now a crew chief


Gordon, initially disappointed because he said he felt he could have done more in the closing laps to earn a better finish, said his anger has grown over the last few days as he learned of the MWR manipulation.

"You realize that people all want to do things for their teammates to help them, but you also know there's certain lines that have to be drawn with that," he said at a Wednesday night appearance in North Carolina, adding he'd learned of the Gilliland and Logano situation en route to the event but didn't have all the facts.

NASCAR took action this week against MWR, placing Newman in the Chase field and bumping Truex. It also fined MWR $300,000 and suspended GM Ty Norris indefinitely.
