"It's the first time I've ever had that happen with this type of mechanism where you just plug it in and it latches," said Gordon. "I thought I had it latched because it happened actually on pit road one time," said Gordon. "And I got it latched and lost some time. And then we were in a pretty good position on the restart and went to take off and as soon as I went into second (gear) and third, just that little bit of a side movement just pulled it out. It would go in and sort of latch, but when you wiggled it from left to right, it would pop right out."
"I knew I couldn't go down into Turn 1 on these crazy restarts without a right-side seat belt," said Gordon. "So, I came in under that stop. We worked on it and now it's good. I have no clue. It's unfortunate." Fox Sports
