Jeff Gordon to test tires, do media luncheon May 8 It's not often that media have the opportuni- ty to see a racer test tires and then take a break to share lunch and quotes, but on May 8 at Dover Downs' Monster Mile, Jeff Gordon will do just that. Gordon, a three-time Winston Cup Series champion, and three-time winner at Dover Downs, will be testing Good Year tires in the morning and afternoon, but will break from noon to 1 p.m. to have lunch and answer ques- tions from the media. Gordon, who races in the No. 24 DuPont Automotive Finishes Chevrolet, has a huge following in the mid-Atlantic states, partly be- cause of his Winston Cup championships and partly because his prime sponsor, DuPont, is based in Wilmington. Gordon has only added to his fans' appreciation at Dover Downs with wins in the 1995 MBNA 500, 1996 Miller 500 and MBNA 500. He also has finished second at Dover Downs twice, including last year's MBNA Platinum 400. Gordon has been a spectacular winner on the Winston Cup circuit since he started racing full-time on the series in 1993 at the age of 21. By 1995, he had already won his first series championship. Gordon won 10 races in 1996 and finished second in the points race, but bounced back immediately in 1997 and '98 with back-to- back Winston" Cup championships. Over that two-year span, he won 23 races. Now Gordon is prepared to take on the Monster Mile at Dover in both the June 4 MB- NA Platinum 400 and the September 24 MB- NA.COM 400. He hopes to return to his old winning ways at Dover. "There was a period of time at Dover," Gor- don said, "that we had just the perfect set-up for that track. Our car was like a rocket ship out there. "Lately, we haven't been as consistent there as we'd like. But we certainly have some great supporters at the two Dover races and we'll do everything we can to win there again?'
