JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 DRIVE TO END HUNGER CHEVROLET SS – POINTS LEADER
(ON POSSIBILITY OF DRAFTING DURING QUALIFYING.):
“While you would want somebody to be quite a bit ahead of you to get a ‘tow’ in a perfect world, I think we’ll be better off just being in ‘clean’ air to get through the corners. But if you’re able to get just a little bit of a draft from a car at a distance, every little bit will help. You just can’t get too close, though.”
At Michigan, Jeff Gordon has 2 wins, 5 poles, 18 top fives, 25 top tens, has led 954 laps, has an average starting position of 11.6 and an average finishing position of 12.5.
