Talladega: Post-Race Notes
JEFF GORDON, NO. 24 AXALTA CHEVROLET SS - FINISHED 14TH
ON HIS RACE:
"It was a good day. I thought that the car was fantastic. I thought the team did an awesome job of executing our plan and we were in perfect position. And it just didn't work out. I got kind of shoved on the back straightaway and was trying not to wreck and that got me out of a really good position and then we were kind of a sitting duck at that point and just went to the back and wanted to see what we could do with them on that final lap. And of course you know, a wreck is going to happen. I hope Austin (Dillon) and Casey (Mears) are okay. That looked pretty nasty."
WERE YOU SURPRISED IT WENT SINGLE FILE LIKE THAT?
"Shocking. Shocking. You never know. I mean it's smart for those guys up front to do that because it eliminates a lot of cars out of the running for the win. But I've never seen guys have that much patience here in my life. So I was pretty shocked to see them just holding that line like they did. Of course they hold that line that one time when we were back there in 25th or whatever it was, so I wasn't real happy at that moment. But we just hung in there and made a couple of moves there at the end."
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE CHASE AND GETTING THROUGH THIS 'WILD CARD' RACE?
"We didn't really gain anything, but we didn't really lose anything. So it was sort of a wash. And in that sense, we didn't tear up a race car. I'm standing here. And we just move on to the next four (races)."
