Jeff Gordon with Tony Stewart on trip, calls accident 'freak thing'

Tony Stewart was having an “absolute blast” riding in the Glamis sand dunes before a “freak thing” occurred Sunday, Jeff Gordon told USA TODAY Sports on Friday.

Gordon was among a group of nine or 10 vehicles riding in the famed sand dunes with Stewart when the drivers realized the three-time NASCAR champion’s sand rail had become separated from the ride. Little did they know Stewart’s car had apparently nosed into the sand after riding over the lip of a dune, which left Stewart with a burst fracture of his L1 vertebra.

I'm usually bored silly by car races but this was a great final few laps! Felt like a horse race coming down to the wire. :)
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!
Like to see some stuck-up jockey boy sittin' on Dan Patch? Make your blood boil? Well, I should say!

Being a Kenseth fan has been heartbreaking the past two weeks. Two lightning fast cars and two poor finishes. :( :( :(

His 37th place finish Sunday didn't help at all.

He's a driver known for his car control yet he's the only one who lost it Sunday. It's like he's cursed.

Matt Kenseth finished 7th at Phoenix. Kevin Harvick looked great Sunday. Phoenix certainly is his track.
