Jeff Gordon knows his chances at winning a fifth title are slim. After barely making NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup, Gordon started the ten race playoff in Chicago with a crash.

Since then Gordon has posted strong runs; a third at New Hampshire and a second place Sunday at Dover International Speedway.

“I thought it was a solid effort,” Gordon said of Sunday’s run.  “Our car was pretty good right from the start.  We struggled a little bit on the shorter runs.  But we got it going.  The car was a good top three or four car.” MORE>>>
