Daytona: Race Preview
JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 PEPSI REAL.BIG.SUMMER CHEVROLET SS – POINTS LEADER
(ON WHAT IT TAKES TO HAVE A GOOD FINISH AT DAYTONA.):
“Luck. We were fortunate there earlier this year to not get caught up in any wrecks and finished in the top five. That’s our plan again this weekend. Hopefully, we’re battling our teammates for the win again, as well. The July race is different because the track is hot and slick and you need a good-handling car. But you still need to avoid the ‘big one’ – or ‘big ones.’”
At Daytona, Jeff Gordon has 6 wins, 4 poles, 13 top fives, 20 top tens, has an average starting position of 10.5, an average finishing position of 16.3 and has led 621 laps.
