Teammates rough up each other to be top dog within organization


Dale Earnhardt didn’t have to look hard or wait long to apologize for knocking Jeff Gordon out of Sunday’s race at the Bristol Motor Speedway.

Earnhardt accepted responsibility for bumping Gordon. The impact cut Gordon’s left-rear tire and sent him caroming into the third turn wall. Gordon probably accepted the explanation, although the memories usually linger.
