NASCAR Atlanta Update: Jeff Gordon's Race To Lose With 20 Laps Remaining

Jeff Gordon has positioned himself for his milestone 85th career victory, which would move him past Darrell Waltrip and Bobby Allison into third on the all-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series list.

Currently, Gordon leads teammate Jimmie Johnson by 1.5 seconds with 20 laps remaining at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Gordon has had the best car throughout the day, but has had to fend off several challengers.

If the race stays green until the end, Gordon should be able to hold off Johnson for the win.
