Darlington: Post-Race Notes

27

JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 DRIVE TO END HUNGER CHEVROLET SS – FINISHED 7TH

YOU ARE STILL LEADING THE POINTS HERE AS YOU COME OFF THIS RACE HERE AT DARLINGTON TELL US ABOUT TONIGHT:

“We had a really strong race car and everything was going really well. Kevin (Harvick) definitely that number one pit stall and he was fast too, but I thought we were a little bit better than him on certain runs. There towards the end I don’t know we just kind of started fading. I got into the wall a little bit and got the right side flattened up a little bit and then from there our night just went downhill. We just made some mistakes and got behind. We were the last car on two tires and then got ate up on those restarts. Actually that last one wasn’t bad to come home seventh. I thought it was going to be a lot worse than that. Good to be leading the points I feel like a missed opportunity, but another great race car and I’m happy about that.”
