Gordon seeks to continue hot streak

If nothing else this season, Jeff Gordon (pictured) has proved to be a man of his word. He promised to grow back the cheesy mustache he sported at the start of his career if he made the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, and made good on it after squeaking past Kyle Busch to get into the 12-driver field. Now, he’s promised to breakdance in Victory Lane if he wins this weekend’s race at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway. He hasn’t won at Charlotte since 2007. But don’t rule out seeing the 41-year-old Gordon bust out a windmill or the worm on Saturday night. Gordon is on a tear, notching six top-three finishes in the last seven races. But he is still just sixth in the Chase standings and trails leader Brad Keselowski by 42 points. – Associated Press
