NASCAR's Jeff Gordon Spins The Fastest Lap For The Dover Race


By Keith Bloemendaal

Jeff Gordon spins the fast lap in qualifying today at Dover International Speedway for the Camping World RV 400 with a time of 22.921 and a speed of 157.061mph.

Earlier this year, Gordon started 7th at the Monster and finished 5th. Over the last 2 years he has finished in the top 12 at Dover for every race. Over Jeff Gordon's career, he has 4 wins, and 14 top 5's at the Monster Mile.

Coming into this race Jeff Gordon is 11th in Chase points, 99 points behind leaders Carl Edwards and Jimmie Johnson. Interesting facts to ponder:

no winner of the Dover Chase race has gone on to win the Cup Series championship during the Chase era,

and perhaps even more importantly, no Chase leader has entered Dover with the points lead and held it after the checkered flag.

The rest of the top 10 Qualifiers (bold indicates chase drivers):

  1. Jeff Gordon
  2. Mark Martin
  3. Denny Hamlin
  4. Kurt Busch
  5. Greg Biffle
  6. Clint Bowyer
  7. David Gilliland
  8. Matt Kenseth
  9. Jamie McMurray
  10. Dale Earnhardt Jr

Other Chase Drivers Qualified:

  • Kyle Busch 11th
  • Jimmie Johnson 20th
  • Jeff Burton 21st
  • Carl Edwards 22nd
  • Kevin Harvick 24th
  • Tony Stewart 33rd

Looking at these qualifying positions, Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards will be working hard to get to the front if they want to protect the shared lead they have now.

In June of this year, Kyle Busch won the Best Buy 400 with Carl Edwards and who else but, GREG BIFFLE running 3rd! Make sure you watch this race, I am sure there will be some action, points position changes, and who knows, maybe Kyle Busch will end up in the wall or put someone in the wall!
