A Tale of Two Drivers

“I look at the table below and ask myself which driver should be ahead in the NASCAR points right now? Which one should be in position to qualify for the Chase for the Nextel Cup?

Driver Wins Top 5 Top 10 Avg Finish % Laps
Kasey Kahne 4 7 12 16th 95.16%
Jeff Gordon 2 8 10 15th 92.19%

Kasey Kahne, right?

Well, Mr. (or Mrs.) NASCAR fan, you know the answer already. It’s Jeff Gordon. And, it’s not because Kasey Kahne self-destructed at the end of the Allstate 400 and the AMD at the Glen races.

Bonus Points

It’s all about bonus points baby! Jeff Gordon has scored 110 bonus points to Kasey Kahne’s 45 bonus points. The Dupont team is doing everything that it takes to be in the top ten after Richmond. Smart racing.
