DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - When Jeff Gordon drove his DuPont Automotive Finishes Chevrolet to the checkers last Sunday at Sears Point Raceway, he took sole ownership of the eighth spot on the all-time NASCAR Winston Cup Series win list. That win also marked his third straight at Sears Point and his sixth consecutive win on the road courses. This weekend, Gordon looks to become the first three-time victor of the 2000 season by winning Saturday night's Pepsi 400 at Daytona International Speedway, the 17th event of the season. "The competition has been fierce this season," said Gordon. "Nobody has dominated and a lot of different faces are showing up in victory lane. "Hopefully, our win on Sunday will give this team the momentum and confidence that need. We're taking the same car to Daytona that we won with in Talladega. However, Daytona is more of a handling track than Talladega and it'll be interesting to see how the car reacts here this weekend compared to how it did in February." Gordon has won the Pepsi 400 at Daytona twice -- once on a Saturday afternoon and once on a Saturday night. In seven starts in the Pepsi 400, Gordon has four top-five and five top-10 finishes. Gordon has also won the Daytona 500 twice, making him a four-time winner at the famous 2.5-mile superspeedway. Gordon's a three-time Winston Cup champion, looking to become a three-time Pepsi 400 winner and the first three -time winner in 2000.
