RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Jeff Gordon rolled into Richmond International Raceway last year with his season on the line.
He was in a tight battle with Kyle Busch for one of the last spots in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship and Gordon desperately wanted to be part of that field.
His hopes were nearly dashed as soon as the race began. After three different rain showers, his Hendrick Motorsports team made major adjustments to his Chevrolet, and Gordon used a vintage drive to storm through the field and finish second - claiming his spot in the Chase.
So as he heads into Saturday night's race as one of 10 drivers jockeying for the five remaining Chase berths, Gordon and the others know nothing is out of reach.
