Runnerup Jeff Gordon content with gamble

FORT WORTH, Texas Jeff Gordon couldnt find fault accompanied by a two-tire pit call crew chief Alan Gustafson manufactured in hopes in putting Gordon positioned to win the Duck Commander 500 Monday at Texas Motor Speedway.
Gordon was happy his crew chief tried an aggre sive move. The four-time Cup champion also Minnesota Vikings Jersey was happy that they can could search in the mirror and think he did plus he could, despite that this individual to for second behind Joey Logano.

Gordon restarted considering the lead and Brian Vickers beside him since the two drivers with only two fresh tires in contrast to four for ones green-white-checkered dash with the finish. He may put off Logano, who restarted third, for any full lap before stopping charge.
I was shocked I have been leading on (Turn 2), to tell the truth, Gordon said with regard to the restart. I wish I would personally have run a small bit higher down (Turns) 3 and 4. I do believe Joey was going to go wherever I failed Brian Robison Jersey to.
I would have been completely a few facts more fortunate above. The real key cro sed over and may have gotten directly into the back of me okay. At that point We were just thinking, I want to finish.

Gordon didnt just return home second, he gone to the top Sprint Cup standings. The regular-season points leader after 26 races automatically is what makes Chase for ones Sprint Cup. The next 15 spots go drivers in the top 30 with wins. If there are spots remaining, then points shall be accustomed to fill the 16-driver field.
Running sixth before the two-tire stop, Gordon said his Hendrick Motorsports team learned a fortnight ago at Auto Club Speedway that four tires wouldnt are generally the very best decision.
Coming in sixth, you're that position that anyone can gamble, Gordon said. You're not visiting win it with four, you're not about to win it with none. I think that had been a superb call.
I feel too fortunate to conclude second. Joey was the cla s with the field there the second 1 / 2 the race. I knew rrt had been usually difficult hold those guys off.
Gustafson said he believes however watch out for exactly the same decision last year as soon as the Chase included the top 10 drivers and also wild cards.
Fortunately for all of us, the people accomplished a great job and weve got off for a good start, from a reasonable submit points then i think you can easliy take that gamble, Riley Reiff Jersey Gustafson said.
There was no alternative way we're preparing to win it. It has been our only shot. I dont think (the new format) did (have influence). It didnt hurt obviously, but I dont think it did. It made most people evaluate the situations Tom Johnson Jersey prefer this in the form of little more aggre sive. It did precisely what it was designed to do.
Gordon had two top-five finishes to spread out 4 seasons, a kind of top-10s along with a 13th with a 12th within the first six races. Thats not even attempt to fret about, but it isnt something to celebrate.
You cant be worried to win, Gustafson said. You run second, third or fourth, you cant say thats sufficiently good. Youve got a chance to be able to contain the guts to make the adjustments as well as decision and continue to win.
