JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 3M CHEVROLET SS – 13TH IN STANDINGS
“The plan is to try to get the win Saturday night or get the best possible finish and not think about the points. I’m sure (No. 24 crew chief) Alan (Gustafson) will keep an eye on it and let me know toward the end of the race if it’s close. We’ve gone into and through Richmond with a lot on the line before, so we have experience dealing with the stress if we have to deal with it again.”
At Richmond, Jeff Gordon has 2 wins, 6 poles, 18 top fives, 29 top tens, has led 1,637 laps, has an average starting position of 8.0 and an average finishing position of 13.47.
