|Look for Jeff Gordon to win the pole in Phoenix|
Phoenix Int'l Raceway today is expected to announce that it will be formally renamed Jeff Gordon Raceway for the Nov. 15 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 to honor the driver.
If Gordon follows through with his plan to retire after this season, that "would make Phoenix his penultimate race."
Some "aspects of the renaming will benefit Gordon's Children's Foundation and Phoenix Raceway Charities." He has four career wins at the track.
