Burton among 4 to start all 26 Cup races in Texas
Question of the Day
FORT WORTH, TEXAS (AP) - Jeff Burton got his first career victory in the first NASCAR Cup race at Texas in 1997.
He added another win there 10 years later.
Burton is in his final season with Richard Childress Racing. The 46-year-old hasn’t revealed his plans for 2014.
“I have always had a lot of respect for him, other than that time he wrecked me here,” Gordon said, drawing laughter from those in the room.
During the fall race three years ago, an angry Gordon shoved Burton with a hard two-handed push after Burton sent Gordon’s No. 24 car crashing into the outside wall during a caution period. Gordon then took some swings before they were separated by NASCAR safety officials.
“He’s a good guy. I think he is a smart race car driver,” Gordon said. “I value his opinions that he has when he is analyzing the sport and the cars just kind of looking at the broader picture. He has got a good perspective and very level head about it.”
