Jeff Gordon unsure how Clint Bowyer ended up on P. Diddy’s yacht

As Clint Bowyer did earlier in the day, Jeff Gordon avoided specifics Thursday when asked about the duo's New Year's Eve encounter aboard P. Diddy's $72 million yacht.

"We talked," Gordon said at Daytona International Speedway where he is taking part in a NASCAR test session.

What Gordon is most curious about is how he, Bowyer and Kevin Harvick all ended up on the music mogul's yacht in the Caribbean Sea at what he referred to as the "party of the year."

"The question is how he got on the yacht," Gordon said. "That needs to be the real question. ... We were just hanging out, having a good time, and on walks Bowyer and Harvick and a couple other folks."

Then, the four-time champ quickly tried to divert the line of questioning by saying he had a "great New Year's (Eve)."

The way Gordon sees it, the conservation between him and Bowyer should stay between the two of them and no one else. As for any lingering uncertainty as to whether Bowyer is still seeking revenge on him after he deliberately wrecked Bowyer last year at Phoenix, Gordon didn't have an answer for that, either.

For now, Gordon is focused solely on fine-tuning his Chevrolet in preparation for next month's Daytona 500. And after one day of testing, the four-time champ is happy with the speed he has shown thus far and is looking forward to seeing how his car handles in traffic.

"It was a fun day to see this new body style out there; it looks great and drives good," Gordon said. "It's an exciting way to get the season started."
