Brickyard Test Session

SPEEDWAY, IN.- - Jeff Gordon took to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in a primer gray #24 Chevrolet during a test session on July 19. Gordon ran 65 laps with a top speed of 180.30 miles per hour, the ninth fastest lap of the 18 drivers at the test session. "We're real happy with things and have a great car to come back here with," Gordon said. "We did the Goodyear tire test (in April), so we just wanted to come back and get one more day in, especially with the heat today and having a couple races run on the track since we were here. It changes the conditions, so we’re pretty happy." Compared to April, Gordon said the track lost some grip. "[In April] it was fresh pavement, really cool conditions, (and) the track was extremely fast," Gordon said He was joined at the Tuesday test session by his Hendrick Motorsports teammates Brian Vickers, Kyle Busch, and Terry Labonte.
