There are 23 race tracks on the current NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule. Jeff Gordon has a win, or in some cases eight wins at 22 of those race tracks! His only hole in the entire NASCAR schedule is Kentucky Speedway. there is a very good explanation, and it’s an understandable one.
The series has raced there (Kentucky) just three times, all won by different winners. Gordon has fared fairly well in those three events, collecting three top 10s, including a fifth-place finish in 2012.
Nevertheless, if he were to win on Saturday night, he’d be the first driver in NASCAR history to win at every track on the active schedule. Nobody has ever done that in the entire history of NASCAR, not Richard Petty, not David Pearson, not even Darrell Waltrip,
NOBODY in the 65 year history of NASCAR has accomplished that fete!
For the record, Gordon’s win list includes Rockingham, which hosted its last NASCAR Sprint Cup race in 2004, and North Wilkesboro where Sprint Cup last raced in 1996.
There is a possibility that, if Jeff Gordon were to win, history could be written!
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
