Jeff Gordon Earns California Pole Position

FONTANA, Calif. (Feb. 23, 2007) - Driving a No. 24 DuPont Cromax Pro Chevrolet, Jeff Gordon, captured his career-second pole position at California Speedway on Friday. He will lead the field to the green flag in Sunday’s Auto Club 500.

“This DuPont Cromax Pro Chevrolet has been awesome ever since we unloaded off the truck,” Gordon said. “We do that because of a lot of hard work by the guys at the shop on this race car, from the aerodynamics to the geometry, and of course under the hood with this Hendrick Motorsports horsepower.

“They are making it a lot of fun for me out there right now—the car is just driving great. I am enjoying myself, enjoying the California sun.”

Hendrick Motorsports teammates Casey Mears (No. 25 National Guard/GMAC Chevy), Kyle Busch (No. 5 CARQUEST/Kellogg’s Chevy) and Jimmie Johnson (No. 48 Lowe’s Chevy) qualified 10th, 12th and 23rd, respectively.
