Gordon proud of NASCAR milestone
Question of the Day
Gordon admits he feels frustrated at times when the wins don’t come as quickly as in the past. Still, he believes he’s continued competing at a high level. “I’m thrilled with the way things are still continuing to go for me because I do feel like we have opportunities to win races,” he said.
Gordon has dealt with back issues through the years and acknowledged he wondered how much longer he could deal with the pain. He’s worked with doctors at managing the pain and knows he’s not bringing himself long-term damage by racing. “I’m hobbling out of the car, but I’m able to walk and I feel pretty decent inside the car,” he said.
Hendrick teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr. says Gordon’s long-term success comes because he knows what he needs from the car, his team and those around him. “He’s just really smart about those things to know how to keep the team jelling well and meshing well with him,” Earnhardt said.
Gordon expects that to continue for a while, no matter how many milestones he achieves. “It’s been an amazing run of great teams and great cars,” Gordon said. “I’m just enjoying the moment right now of those 700 and not thinking too far ahead.”
