Nascar: Gordon’s Luck Is Missing

The usually outstanding NASCAR pilot Jeff Gordon has been suffering of a bad luck streak lately and this Sunday he got caught in an eleven car crash halfway through the UAW-Ford 500 at Talladega Super Speedway. Gordon has won four times the NASCAR Championship but this time he ended up 36th. This is his second consecutive ending near the bottom of the field.

Gordon and his team handled to put his damaged Chevrolet #24 again on track to at least make up a few places and earn a few additional points in the race. But according to Gordon “…it just doesn’t seem meant to be for the DuPont Chevrolet”.

Last Sunday Gordon was leading a race-high 27 laps before the crash on lap 138 of 188. The famous pilot fell from the 6th position to the 7th with six races remaining for the Nextel Cup Championship. At the end he only lost 27 points to the series leader.

Jeff Burton was fifth before he had to pit with a flat tire just 11 laps from the end. He finished in the 27th place.

Brian Vickers was the eventual winner of the race. He knocked Jimmie Johnson into leader Dale Earnhardt on the last lap and both pilots spun off the track. Earnhardt, whose current position in the points is sixth ended up in the 23rd place and Johnson in the 24th and eight in the points.

The pilot Matt Kenseth finished second. Batesville’s Mark Martin finished eighth and Kevin Harvick finished sixth.

Denny Hamlin started the day in second place but he earned 18 points on Burton although he fell all the way to fifth place after being involved in two crashes and at the end he finished in the 21st place.
