Dodge Avenger 500 - Darlington Raceway

Gordon Steams to Seventh Darlington Victory
Jeff Gordon overcame a heating problem as the race came to a close and held off a hard charging Denny Hamlin to win the rain-delayed Dodge Avenger 500 at Darlington Raceway to net his 78th victory in 484 career NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series races. This is Gordon's third victory and 10th top-10 finish in 2007. With steam shooting out of the hood of his car like an old locomotive, Gordon railroaded his way to his seventh victory and 18th top-10 finish in 27 races at Darlington Raceway. Denny Hamlin finished second, .978 second behind the DuPont Chevrolet. It is his sixth top-10 of 2007 and his second in as many races at Darlington. Jimmie Johnson finished third, posting his eight 2007 top-10 and his seventh in eight races at Darlington. Hendrick Motorsports has won four consecutive races (Phoenix-Darlington). Gordon accounted for three of those victories with Johnson posting the other. This is the second time this season and the fourth time since 1998 that HMS has posted four straight wins. Gordon retained the point lead for the seventh race and is now 231 points ahead of Johnson.
