Bristol: Qualifying Notes
JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 AXALTA CHEVROLET SS – QUALIFIED SIXTH
TALK ABOUT YOUR QUALIFYING RUN:
“It was good to make the top 12. We were fast in practice when we moved over into qualifying runs. We had pretty high expectations and it was a really good first run. The car was a little bit tight so we were just trying to figure out how much to free it up for that second run. We went out there and the car was decent, but just not quite free enough. I got a little bit out of the race track here off of (turn) four. I knew it wasn’t my best lap so we went to try to make another run. At a track like this and this is what we are going to see as we progress through the season is which tracks tires fall off, which ones they don’t and there is a lot of strategy involved with now which is very interesting to me. Because I think a lot of the guys that ran fast the second session were loose the first session and their cars kind of came to them. Where our car was really good maybe a little too tight in the first session and got too tight the second session.”
