"Getting the car balanced right to maximize grip is pretty tricky here," said Jeff Gordon in this week's preview press release. "It's a one-mile track that is high-banked, fast and action-packed. And you're in the corners a lot here."
Our View: Gordon has been one of the strongest drivers on this concrete course during his career, but he has not posted a victory there since 2001. This is one of the most important tracks on his personal schedule, since sponsor DuPont is headquartered just up the road.
