Jeff Gordon is defeating all the odds. Gordon snuck into Nascar’s final 10 race event called “The Chase,” 8 weeks ago. Gordon was sitting out of the chase, 1 point away from being in. After all the sanctions and penalties handed down to other drivers, Gordon was allowed in the chase. Now, after a win at Martinsville, he’s in third place of the standings, twenty-seven points behind the leader with 3 races to go. Not many thought this 4 time champion, 88 career wins, 20 year veteran would be in contention for the championship. So try not to be too surprised if you see the number 24 team holding up the championship trophy in 3 short weeks.
