Jeff Gordon offers an apology following a highway incident he was involved in


Jeff Gordon might be retired from racing, but that still doesn't stop him from driving fast and passing fellow drivers on the highway.

Gordon apparently passed someone aggressively on the highway, and whoever he passed flipped him off. Gordon tweeted out his "apology" and said his excitement to get to Daytona got the best of him.

Jeff Burton joked that it was him that gave Gordon the bird, and Gordon said Burton needed to work on his communication skills.

Hopefully the driver who gave Gordon the bird realizes who it was after seeing Gordon's tweet. That would be a pretty cool story to tell people.
