JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 AARP MEMBER ADVANTAGES CHEVROLET SS – FINISHED 12TH
AFTER BASICALLY A DRAMA-FREE DAY, WAS THIS WHAT YOU NEEDED TO DO TO GET THROUGH?
“I wouldn’t call it ‘drama-free’. I was freaking out there at the end. We were pretty solid in the top 10 all day long. I’m really proud of this team and what they’ve accomplished. We’ve gone through a lot and it hasn’t been pretty. That’s kind of the way today was. We knew we needed to be in the top 10 or top 11, or maybe 12th, if we were lucky. We did that. Until the end, when that caution came out and people swapped-up their strategy; we just got ate up on that restart and were falling back and I didn’t know what was going to happen. So, it wasn’t easy. I’m really proud of this AARP Member Advantages Chevrolet. We’ll re-set and go see what we can do in the next three (races).”
