CONCORD, N.C. -- This week, Jeff Gordon returns to the No. 88 Nationwide Chevrolet SS -- substituting once again for Dale Earnhardt Jr., who will miss the remainder of the season as he continues to recover from a concussion.
Gordon is scheduled to serve as the fill-in driver Sunday at Dover International Speedway and again Oct. 30 at Martinsville Speedway.
The remainder of the races this season will feature Alex Bowman behind the wheel of the No. 88 Chevy.
That included last week's race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, but even though he wasn't behind the wheel, Gordon made his way to the track.
Gordon took in the race from atop multiple Hendrick Motorsports pit boxes, watching as the organization took home two top-10 results, with all four drivers finishing inside the top 14.
