JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 DRIVE TO END HUNGER CHEVROLET SS – FINISHED 8TH
YOU HAD A SOLID DAY GOING WHAT EVENTUALLY DERAILED YOU?
“I guess there were a couple of things. Mainly we just couldn’t catch any breaks on the restarts. I don’t know whatever happened to the No. 22, something happened to the No. 27 it was just kind of chaos. But our Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet was actually really quick. I thought that was consistent all day long. The pit stops were fantastic. When guys got out of sequence there, it just really got our track position off. Once we lost that track position it was so hard to regain it. It was a great effort, great race car again. Ultimately, the restarts even when I got a good one something would happen somebody would about wreck in front of me or dive in there four-wide and just cause a mess. We just couldn’t come out on the good end of that side of it. That is what you have got to do to be good. Congrats to Junior, that is awesome to see him win here at Pocono. He had a strong car all day. Those guys played the pit strategy perfectly and it really paid off. That is great to see.”
