Jeff Gordon's No. 24 Team Needs to Quit Making Mistakes

Each and every week, it seems like the Jeff Gordon and his 24 team have the same issues, but on different tracks. When Gordon has a good car, it seems to start off well during the race, but then fade as the race ends, especially on final restarts. If there is nothing wrong with Gordon’s car at first, all of the sudden the car will get too tight or too loose. Oh, and you can always count on mistakes on pit stops.

When does it end? When will this madness end?

Gordon is still upset about what happened at New Hampshire, but if he can get back on track and win sooner rather than later, everything will be fine. At the end of the day, those things happen. But, those kind of things continue to happen frequently for the no. 24 team.

“I’m disappointed in myself (for that mistake), but I’ll learn from it and we’ll move on from it this weekend,” Gordon noted via

When they are in a position to win a race, they don’t come through nearly as much as they should. We can talk about the race at Pocono this past August where Gordon beat Kasey Kahne on the second to last restart, and was on his way to earning his first win of the season. But another restart occurred, and it didn’t go Gordon’s way as Kahne won the race.

They have to take no prisoners from here on out, and grab victories with confidence.
