Jeff Gordon: Is He a Chase Contender After Winning at Pocono?

jeff gordon

It took 21 races, a lucky break and a well-timed thunderstorm, but Jeff Gordon finally has his first win of the Sprint Cup season after taking the Pennsylvania 400 in Pocono last Sunday.

In a season that has seen him bounce around the edge of the top 20 of series points, Gordon finally holds one of two wild-card spots in the 10-race championship battle. He’s ranked 13th—his best mark of the season—and has finished sixth or better in six of the past seven races.

But does that mean the four-time champion is a serious threat to win his first Chase?
