CONCORD, N.C. (AP) Sentimentality can wait. Jeff Gordon is not ready to focus on life after racing as his farewell tour arrives at the longest event on the NASCAR schedule.
Gordon, in what's become a weekly line of questioning, was asked for his emotions running his last Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sunday night.
"I think if this were my final race ever, it'd be different," the four-time Sprint Cup champion said. "But I have a whole season ahead of me and that's not where my mindset is at right now."
