JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 3M CHEVROLET SS – 13TH IN STANDINGS
"Bristol is the one track that I go in the night before and walk over to it when nobody is there. I just look at it and go, ‘man, this place is cool.’ There is no other place like it, the stadium and those hills and Tennessee. If we ever had a coliseum or a real stadium, it would be Bristol.
“The addition of the SAFER barriers is going to change the groove slightly. It’s definitely going to change how we race there. I hope it makes it more exciting with even more action. I’ll get my first look at it probably Thursday night.”
At Bristol, Jeff Gordon has 5 wins, 5 poles, 16 top fives, 24 top tens, has led 2,720 laps, has an average starting position of 7.3 and an average finishing position of 12.3.
