 CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Jeff Gordon earned the first of his 82 victories at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Now, 16 years later, he's stuck in the longest losing streak of his career.
But his pole-winning run has him in strong position to snap that 59-race drought Saturday night at Charlotte, where he has five career victories, but only one since 1999. It was Gordon's first pole of the year and a breakthrough victory this weekend would bolster his chance of winning the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
Gordon says winning the pole was ``a huge shock.''
Saturday night marks the halfway point in the Chase, and Gordon goes into the race ranked fourth in the standings. He's 85 points behind Jimmie Johnson, the four-time defending series champion.
