Kansas: Post-Race Notes
JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 DRIVE TO END HUNGER CHEVROLET SS - FINISHED 13TH
HOW BADLY WERE YOU HURT WHEN THAT FINAL CAUTION CAME OUT WHEN IT DID?
"It cost us probably a good six positions I think. We weren't the best car, but we made some great improvements throughout the weekend. The race pace just kind of came to us and the conditions in the race. Really kind of brought us to life compared to the competition. We are still lacking a few things, but all in all I thought it was a great effort. We just cannot catch a break. That last caution that definitely hurt us being on pit road when the caution comes out it's never a good thing unless you are on a road course (laughs). We were looking pretty good up until that point, but we weren't the only ones that it hurt."
WHAT ARE YOUR OVERALL THOUGHTS ON THE RACE FINISHING 13TH WITH HAVING TO START LAST?
"Well, I mean if you would have asked me when the race started or before the race started 'hey you are going to finish 13th today', I would say 'hey that is not bad'. When you find yourself where you are a sixth or seventh place car and you think you can finish there then 13th is a little disappointing. You are constantly changing your expectations throughout a race. That is kind of how it was for us today. Starting 43rd I was not looking forward to that. It actually went a little bit better than I anticipated. We were able to make our way up through there and actually had some cautions fall our way at the beginning of the race. That last one just didn't fall the way we needed it to."
