With his season essentially on the line, Jeff Gordon used a vintage drive to rally his way into NASCAR's championship chase. The 41-year-old Gordon battled an ill-handling car early in Saturday night's race, then took off at the end to finish second to race winner Clint Bowyer at Richmond International Raceway. He wrested the final berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship away from Kyle Busch. Busch finished 16th, and Gordon grabbed the 12th spot in the Chase field by a mere three points. Team owner Joe Gibbs met Busch on pit road and leaned into the car window to console the angry driver.
