Gordon Looks to Relive His NASCAR Watkins Glen Glory Days on Sunday

NascarNASCAR - Gordon Looks to Relive His NASCAR Watkins Glen Glory Days on Sunday


With just over a month left until the Sprint Cup Series begins its playoffs Jeff Gordon will be looking to solidify his place in the Chase on Sunday when the circuit ditches its usual oval for a road course at the Finger Lakes 355 at the Glen at Watkins Glen International.

 Gordon gave his Chase chances a big boost last weekend with a win in the Pennsylvania 400 at Pocono Raceway. That victory – in a rain-shortened event – pushed Gordon into the second Wild Card berth for the Chase. However, he's only in 13th place overall in the standings, so getting the win at Watkins Glen on Sunday would help him immensely.
 
 And Gordon has won at Watkins Glen before, most recently claiming a Cup title at the track in the 2001 Global Crossing at The Glen but also winning there in three straight years from 1997 to 1999. That kind of experience gives him value on the NASCAR lines for this week.
 
 Gordon, though, will still have to battle other drivers with a knack for road-course venues on Sunday, including 2011 Watkins Glen winner Marcos Ambrose, 2010 winner Juan Montoya and 2009 winner (and five-time Watkins Glen champion) Tony Stewart.
 
 As well, Kyle Busch – who will be looking to bump Gordon from that Wild Card spot in the standings with a second 2012 victory this weekend – won the Centurion Boats at The Glen on the track in 2008. Busch's lone win this season came at Richmond back on April 28.
 
 On the Sprint Cup Championship futures at Bovada heading into the weekend it's Jimmie Johnson atop the list at 11/4 to win the title in 2012; he's never won at Watkins Glen. Stewart (13/2) and Dale Earnhardt Jr. (7/1) trail him on that championship odds list at Bovada, while Gordon sits at 12/1 odds to claim the Sprint Cup title for himself this year.
