Fontana: Qualifying Notes
JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 DRIVE TO END HUNGER CHEVROLET SS – QUALIFIED 6TH:
“You really just have one lap at it. And that last run, I just got a little bit too tight going back to the gas in the middle of (Turns) 1 and 2 and it just cost us a little bit. It was unfortunate. I felt like we had a car that could really get it done today, but all in-all we’re having a great weekend so far and I’m real happy with the car.
“This is traditionally a great track for us at Hendrick Motorsports. I love this track; this is so much fun to drive with all the different grooves and lanes you can run on. And I think you’ll hear that across the board. I’m just having a lot of fun. I’ve got a great race car and a great race team. We’re just enjoying the season so far with the momentum that we’ve been able to have and then to come here and have a strong car like we have here just really gets me excited about Sunday’s race.”
