NASCAR Atlanta Update: Jeff Gordon Leads After Final Green-Flag Pit Stops

Jeff Gordon took the lead from Jimmie Johnson shortly before the final green-flag pit stops of the day at Atlanta Motor Speedway, but a possible loose wheel threatened to ruin his day.

Fortunately for Gordon, he was able to time his green-flag stop perfectly with the rest of the field, and he retained the lead after the scoring cycled through with 40 laps to go.

Johnson came out second, followed by Kurt Busch, Brad Keselowski and Carl Edwards.

There are 35 laps to go.
