Michigan: Race Preview
JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 AXALTA CHEVROLET SS – 2ND IN STANDINGS
“Michigan is a big, fast, two-mile racetrack – the fastest we have on the circuit – with no restrictor plates. The speed really gets your attention.
“In turns 1 and 2, you drive into the corner deep but then get back on the throttle early. It’s a flatter entry into (turn) 3, so you have to be a little more careful with how hard you drive into that corner.
“In June, we qualified well, ran well and had a strong car. But it was all about track position, track position, track position. We lost it, and it was tough to get back.”
At Michigan, Jeff Gordon has 2 wins, 5 poles, 18 top fives, 26 top tens, has led 990 laps, has an average starting position of 11.3 and an average finishing position of 12.3.
