Jeff Gordon is 1 for 33 in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 2009

November 6, 2009 |  7:24 pm

Jeffgordon_300 Jeff Gordon has won only one race in 2009. That came at Texas Motor Speedway in April. The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers are back in Texas for a race Sunday. Gordon was asked about returning the site of his only win of the year.

He was also asked about chasing Jimmie Johnson and if he has any chance of catching the three-time reigning Cup champion.

Gordon, who won the pole for Sunday's race at Texas, also chimed in about the eminent debut of Danica Patrick to NASCAR. The IndyCar Series star will make the move to NASCAR in 2010 and drive for Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s Nationwide Series team, reportedly.
