May 2 – – Jeff Gordon knew he didn’t have the car to compete with Kyle Busch for the victory at Richmond International Raceway. Crew chief Steve Letarte gambled by keeping Gordon on the track during a late caution period to allow him to inherit the lead– focusing solely on a victory. However, a series of caution flags allowed Busch to close in and eventually pass Gordon for the lead with 50 laps to go. Older tires hindered Gordon’s efforts and he faded to 8th place at the finish. Nevertheless, he re-assumed the series points lead after losing the top spot at Talladega.

Our apologies for losing the last half of the race. Not sure what happened.
