Gather 'round, young'uns, and let me tell you a story about the driver of the #24 car. For a decade and a half, he terrified NASCAR. But then he stopped winning, and he lost, and lost and lost. And so he prepared to shuffle on off into retirement, since he -- wait, what? He won on Sunday? Really? Huh. How about that?
Huge congrats to Gordon for getting that 18-month-old monkey off his back. He cements his place atop the Sprint Cup standings, and as we said last week about Jimmie Johnson, if there's anybody thinking he's going to fade, well -- no sign of that at all.
