Miami Victory For Gordon Would Be Savored For Months

Miami Victory For Gordon Would Be Savored For Months

Jeff Gordon wants to soak in Miami through off-season.

The 36-race 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season comes to an end this weekend with the Ford Ecoboost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and it's three months before the 2014 season begins in Daytona Beach. What could possibly make that time off more enjoyable?

"A win this weekend," said Gordon. "Don't get me wrong - all wins are special. The win we had at Martinsville a few weeks ago was great, but our focus quickly turned to the next race.

"It's really cool to win before an off-weekend because you get to enjoy the victory a little bit longer before your attention turns toward the next race. A win going into the off-season? Even better because you are the most recent race winner for a few months."

In 14 starts at the South Florida track, Gordon has seven top-fives and 11 top top-10's. Last year, Gordon led the final 13 laps en route to his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

"It was great to finally get a Sprint Cup victory here," said Gordon, driver of the No. 24 Axalta Racing Chevrolet SS. "It also was cool to call into the office at Hendrick Motorsports during the offseason and be placed on hold. While on hold, the closing laps of that race is what you heard.

"And I didn't tire of hearing that radio call."

A few weeks ago, Gordon and the Hendrick Motorsports organization tested here in advance of the season finale. The four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion left the test with high hopes.

"I believe we've elevated our intermediate track program," said Gordon. "The test here went well, so I really believe we can have a strong performance and battle for the victory."

A victory he would love hear about often in the months to come.
