JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 AXALTA CHEVROLET SS – FINISHED 6TH
YOU LED THE MOST LAPS, HAD A GREAT CAR ALL DAY, BUT THOSE LAST TWO RESTARTS, TELL US WHAT HELD YOU THROUGH TO GET TO THE FRONT:
“It wasn’t just the restarts. Those guys knew that they had to do the exact opposite strategy of us, but Alan and the team just did an amazing job today. Awesome, awesome car, great to have Maaco on board of this Axalta Chevy SS. We had the dominant car, but you had to have track position and you know, there at the end we didn’t have it. I think if we had started in the outside lanes there at the end we would have had it. My restarts weren’t terrible today, they weren’t bad when we were on the outside and we could make up some spots. Unfortunately on those last couple ones, we were on the inside. But with Dale getting out in front of us there through that pit sequence, there was nothing we could do. He was really good. Whoever got out front, him or me, was going to win this race. I am still really happy with the way our car performed today. It’s just so awesome and encouraging. It's got my confidence sky high and I just can’t wait to get to the next race.”
