In 24 starts at Texas Motor Speedway, Jeff Gordon has a lone win (2009), two poles, eight top-fives and 11 top-10's.
Last Sunday's third-place finish at Martinsville Speedway marked Gordon's 299th top-five - only two away from tying David Pearson for third all-time. That finish on a relatively flat half-mile track could prove valuable this weekend according to No. 24 crew chief Alan Gustafson. "As crazy as it sounds, things we learned at Martinsville can help at Texas," said Gustafson. "Right now, everything is so new to us (with the Generation-6 car) that we are learning every week."-Performance PR Plus
