Richmond (AP)—Four times this season, Jeff Gordon has been in position for a win.
He came up short all four times.
Kyle Busch became the latest driver to deny Gordon a victory, passing
him after the final restart Saturday night at Richmond International
Raceway for his first win of the season.
For Busch, it snapped a 21-race losing streak, his longest since
joining Joe Gibbs Racing in 2008.
“It stinks to not win every single weekend or not every 21 weekends
or 21 races,” Busch said. “But it certainly feels nice to come out here
with another good win and get another good finish.”
Gordon saw his drought reach 38 races. Since his last win, at Texas
last April, Gordon has finished second a frustrating eight times.
