SPARTA, Ky. (AP) - Jeff Gordon hopes that crossing the last track off his to-win list can help him gain ground in the Chase standings.


Either way, the four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion has his work cut out for him.


Kentucky Speedway is the lone Cup venue left for Gordon to conquer, though Saturday night will mark just his third start at the track. It's still a challenge with a rough, bumpy surface, not to mention a history of triple-digit track temperatures that have worn down drivers and cars.


Gordon's biggest obstacle is clearing three drivers and cracking the top 10 for a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. That's asking a lot in a hard-luck season including four DNFs, leaving no room for error with 10 races remaining in NASCAR's regular season.
