DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) Jeff Gordon hopes to make his last Southern 500 as a full-time driver as memorable as the rest of his career at Darlington Raceway.
Gordon is third all-time with seven Darlington victories, including a record six Southern 500s. He'd love nothing more than to lock up a spot in Sprint Cup's championship chase with another checkered flag at the track "Too Tough To Tame."
"That would be huge," said Gordon, who sits a precarious 13th in points for the 16-driver Chase playoff. "I feel like we were in pretty comfortable position a month ago and we've just had some misfortunes."
