Jeff Gordan to make his 600th Cup start at Chicagoland


Daytona Beach, Florida (July 7, 2010) – Jeff Gordon will make his 600th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start on Saturday night in the LifeLock.com 400, at Chicagoland Speedway.


A four-time series champion, Gordon has enjoyed one of the most prolific careers in the sport’s history. Consider the following:


- Four series titles. Only Hendrick Motorsports teammate Jimmie Johnson and Hall of Famers Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt have four or more series championships.


- 82 career victories. That ranks sixth all-time. One more win, and Gordon will tie Cale Yarborough for fifth. Two more, and he’ll tie Bobby Allison and Darrell Waltrip for third.


- 68 poles. That ranks fourth all-time. One more, and he’ll tie Yarborough for third.


- 272 top fives and 371 top 10s rank sixth and eighth, respectively.


Gordon began his NASCAR Sprint Cup career in the final race of 1992 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, and has not missed a single event since. All 599 starts have been consecutive.
