Jeff Gordon made a rare mistake Sunday during the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.  A week and two days after he was added as the 13th driver in the Chase Gordon finished 6th at Chicagoland moving up six spots in the Chase 24 points out of the lead.

Sunday Gordon’s hopes to make up any ground took a big hit. After starting third Gordon quickly asserted himself and would go on to lead 36 laps. His hopes for a win however ended on lap 200 when Gordon, who was leading at the time, headed in for what should have been a routine pit stop during a debris caution.  Gordon slid through his pits; NASCAR forced Gordon back in and he had to restart at the end of the longest line which was 22nd.

“I knew it was close. When I got in there, the front started to slide,” Gordon said. MORE>>>
