Gordon would like to see change to car for road courses

After racing the new Gen-6 car for the first time on a road course, runner-up #24-Jeff Gordon has a note for NASCAR's suggestion box. "There's one thing I'm going to talk to NASCAR about with this car," Gordon said after posting a much-needed top five that vaulted him three positions to 13th in the Cup standings. "We don't have the body in the right position for the road courses to turn right. When we go to Watkins Glen, as fast as those right-handers are, we're going to have some issues. There's nothing to lean on. You have plenty of grip on the lefts, because the body still has a little bit of rake on the rights. It has nice sideforce for the right side of the car for those left turns, but on the right turns, the cars are just so out of control." That's an issue Gordon hopes NASCAR will address.
