Four-time series champion Jeff Gordon felt like his hopes were dead in the water when NASCAR red-flagged his last chance to get into the playoffs because of rain at Richmond International Raceway.
Slipping and sliding around oil-spattered Watkins Glen International on the last lap and fighting for the lead, Marcos Ambrose and Brad Keselowski didn't know what lay around the next turn.

Kyle Busch watched his No. 18 car going around the track in Texas from the team's pit box Sunday.
Kyle Busch and Tony Stewart are known for their racing success and explosive tempers.
Kyle Busch's latest brush with NASCAR cost him $25,000, and proved he's still a work in progress when it comes to maturity.
Kyle Busch was fined $25,000 by NASCAR on Tuesday for his obscene gesture, and the driver again apologized for losing his temper.
"You know, we were both speechless," Rogers said, describing their meeting in the team hauler after Busch limped home to finish 16th.
He had little to say to Rogers when they met after the race, either.
