THAT’S RIGHT……..HE’S BAAAAAAACK!!!!!
It took 17 tries for Jeff Gordon to put this notch in his belt, but he finally won a race at Texas!!! Now there is just one more track left that he has failed to secure a victory, Homestead-Miami. I think that it was Will Rogers who said ,”the rumors of my demise are very premature”!!! The same could be said about Jeff Gordon, the rumors of his demise is very premature!! It has been 47 races since the Hendrick Motorsports #24 Dupont Chevy visitied victory lane, that is more than one full year of racing!!!!! Despite being very consistent and leading the points this season, he had not taken his ride into victory lane until this Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway. Sunday Jeff got his Cowboy Hat and Six Shooters, look out Dallas/Ft. Worth there is a new Sheriff in town!!!
This victory has put Jeff Gordon just one victory behind Cale Yarborough, voted one of THE 50 GREATEST DRIVERS OF NASCAR!!!!! That is quite a fete, but Jeff Gordon’s career is far from over. Let be known that he is securing his place in the NASCAR history books. Having four Cup Championships to his credit, his drive for FIVE is alive and well in 2009!!!
Speaking from the “HE’S BACK” category, the Stewart-Haas #14 OfficeDepot/Old Spice Chevy has emerged as a contender for the Chase. As much as this reporter hates to admit it, Tony Stewart has put his mark on the old Haas-CNC team and has taken it to a new level (read my previous article)!! Stewart raced his Chevy very hard putting it in fourth place at the end of the day. He ran all day long in the top 10 and mostly in the top 5 with the other ‘BIG DOGS’, very impressive!!
Now the question of the week.
WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE #88 TEAM????
DOES ANYONE HAVE A CLUE?????????????
