Atlanta Letdown
March 1 - - Jeff Gordon's frustrating weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway concluded with a crash on lap 257 of the Folds of Honor 500. Gordon started 35th after not being able to quality because of NASCAR's technical inspection. He struggled with handling during the race, and was running 10th when he was taken out in a crash. "I saw the 11 (Denny Hamlin) get sideways," Gordon said. "I had him cleared. I stood in the gas and went by him. But I guess he clipped the 1 (Jamie McMurray), and that turned the 1 back into me. After that I was just along for the ride... sent me down the back straightaway. It wouldn't have been too bad, but I found that one spot where there's no SAFER barrier. I can't believe it. That's amazing to me. Anyway, hopefully soon that'll get fixed. It was a pretty big impact. I just hate it for this team. We were struggling. We didn't have the car I thought we were going to have. But we weren't giving up on it. We were going to make gains and we finally got ourselves in the top-10. I think we had a shot at getting in the top-5. But obviously not the way we wanted to start our season." This is just the second time Gordon started a season with consecutive finishes below 30th place (also 1996).

    Fight On Against Pediatric Cancer
    In 2011, Jackson Panzarello forever altered the course of my life. Jackson's battle against cancer sparked my efforts to give more children a fighting chance against the disease. He passed away in 2012, but his legacy continues through the impact we've made for research and treatment. I have many teammates who open their hearts and wallets every time I have a pediatric cancer fundraising event. Whether you've donated $5, $500, or $5,000, your continued support means to the world to me. My fundraising efforts are directly tied to the power of teamwork. It is truly, as the inscription at Hendrick Motorsports reads, "the fuel that allows common people to produce uncommon results." Please consider a donation and join our team in the fight against pediatric cancer.
