JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 DRIVE TO END HUNGER CHEVROLET SS – 2ND IN STANDINGS
(ON CONTENDER ROUND AND KANSAS): “The rounds will just get tougher and tougher. In this round, I think everyone hopes to get to Talladega without having to worry about posting a good finish since that race is very unpredictable and there’s the likelihood of a big wreck that could shake things up.
“We won at Kansas earlier this year, so we’re excited about this weekend. We’d like to get another win to go ahead and clinch a spot in the Eliminator Round. But if we don’t, solid finishes this weekend and at Charlotte hopefully put us in a good position before Talladega.”
At Kansas, Jeff Gordon has 3 wins, 10 top fives, 12 top tens, has led 217 laps, has an average starting position of 13.7 and an average finishing position of 10.1.
