Kansas: Qualifying Notes
JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 AXALTA CHEVROLET SS - QUALIFIED 14TH
HOW WAS IT OUT THERE?
"It wasn't bad. I just hate that our Axalta Chevrolet and (crew chief) Alan (Gustafson) and the guys did some good adjustments because I think the track conditions were better earlier in practice. And we made some good adjustments to get the car to do what I needed to do. I really got through Turns 1 and 2 good. I didn't think I got through (Turns) 3 and 4 that well, so there's certainly some room for improvement. And we'll just wait and see. We went too early to really know what we've got. I'm just happy that we picked up from where we were in practice. For these conditions, that's a good thing.
"It was a pretty good lap. Going out second, we knew that was going to put us a little bit behind. You just don't know what the grip level is after the Nationwide practice. But I thought we made some good adjustments from practice. Our Axalta Chevrolet has been really strong and we gave it everything we've got. We picked up a little bit after practice, which is always a good thing. We'll see where it ends up."
IS DALE JARRETT RIGHT WHEN HE SAYS THIS WILL BE A GOOD WEEKEND FOR JEFF GORDON?:
"I certainly hope so. DJ (Dale Jarrett) is usually on it so I hope that I can back up what he said and make him look good."
YOU'VE HAD SOME FAST RACE CARS, THAT'S FOR SURE
"We have; and so far this weekend based on yesterday and today, we've got another fast race car. So, I'm really proud of this team and how they've stepped up at the right time here and just bringing great race cars. We've been having a lot of fun out there on race day and hope to have a lot of fun here on Sunday."
