Chicagoland: Qualifying Notes
JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 DRIVE TO END HUNGER CHEVROLET SS - QUALIFIED SIXTH
ON EARNING A SPOT IN THE CHASE FOR THE NASCAR SPRINT CUP:
"Oh, it's been a roller coaster ride this week and an unusual set of circumstances. I've never been a part of anything like this before. But for my team and my fans that that have been overwhelmingly supportive this week, for the tough decisions that NASCAR has to make, and for Drive to End Hunger, I'm extremely happy about this. We're proud to be in it, and now an incredible set of opportunities lie on our shoulders to go out there and show that we belong in this Chase."
WHEN WE INTERVIEWED YOU AFTER THE RACE AT RICHMOND, YOU WERE TOTALLY UNAWARE, AS WERE MANY, WHAT HAD TRANSPIRED THAT YOU DIDN'T GET IN. NOW THAT YOU'VE SEEN WHAT HAPPENED ALL WEEK WITH THE MEDIA; AND NASCAR'S DECISIONS, IS THIS IN YOUR MIND JUSTICE SERVED?
"Well, certainly from where I'm standing now and all that we've been through this week and looking at that race and how hard we worked, it would be easy for me to say that. But we've got some issues that need to be addressed. I'm looking forward to this meeting tomorrow; to work through some of those and to interact with NASCAR and hear what they have to say as well as come up with long-term solutions of how we get around these types of events ever occurring again. And I know we're going to leave that (meeting) with hopefully a crystal clear set of guidelines to make sure that we're only going out there and racing as hard as we possibly can the way this No. 24 was last week.
CONGRATULATIONS ON BEING IN. NOW GO OUT AND MAYBE GET YOUR FIFTH CHAMPIONSHIP:
"Well we had a good car today. And speaking of fans, we've got 516 contributors to Drive to End Hunger on my hood that are all going to be riding around here with us on Sunday; and now for a Chase for the Championship in Sprint Cup. Thank you."
