JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 DRIVE TO END HUNGER CHEVROLET SS – POINTS LEADER
“While Sonoma is a finesse track, Watkins Glen is a track where you have to be aggressive and attack. It’s a very challenging track, but it’s fun and it’s fast.
“Double-file restarts really changed things, too. It changed things on the ovals, but it really changed things on the road courses, because it gives you that extra opportunity to be aggressive, to get the position and to take some extra chances to try to get that position or maintain a position – and that causes a lot of incidents.
“But that has also made the road course events some of the most exciting races we have on the circuit.”
At Watkins Glen, Jeff Gordon has 4 wins, 3 poles, 6 top fives, 9 top tens, has an average starting position of 10.2, an average finishing position of 15.8 and has led 233 laps.
