Jeff Gordon, No. 24 team at Watkins Glen
Jeff Gordon started Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup event at Watkins Glen (New York) International with plenty of momentum, starting from the pole position and leading the first 29 laps of the 90-lap race. The driver of the No. 24 Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet SS was running second when his car lost power and he was forced to make a trip to pit road, returning to the track later to finish 34th.
