Sonoma: Race Preview
JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 PANASONIC CHEVROLET SS – POINTS LEADER
“I grew up in Vallejo – which is a few miles from the track in Sonoma – but I was always racing on ovals or dirt tracks as a kid. It was much later before I turned my first lap at Sonoma while in a driving school preparing for my first Cup start there. I immediately saw the challenges and the fun of racing at Sonoma and on road courses. We’ve worked hard as a team to be competitive on road courses and we’ve had a lot of success at Sonoma. But it’s not an easy track to conquer.”
At Sonoma, Jeff Gordon has 5 wins, 5 poles, 13 top fives, 17 top tens, has led 454 laps, has an average starting position of 7.5 and an average finishing position of 8.2.
