Sears Point – June 25, 2000

Sonoma, CA – The first of two road courses for Gordon, Sears Point is a track Gordon had been looking forward to since he comes from a road-racing background. Gordon was the fastest car in practice Friday, slipping slightly during qualifying to post the 11th-quickest time. In Sunday’s race Gordon challenged in the top-five all day in his CD2 Ford Taurus. In the latter stages of the race while running 5th, Gordon felt a bobble in the fuel pressure and pit with 15 laps remaining. With fresh tires and no concerns about fuel he was able to gain 15 spots and finish 9th, the team’s first top-10 finish of the year.

Starting position – 11th

Finishing position – 9th (running)
