New, 5 comments

This is a recap of my first day at Fort Worth's Texas Motor Speedway for NASCAR's Duck Commander 500.

It all starts with these. A big thank you to both NASCAR and Texas Motor Speedway for allowing Good Bull Hunting in as credentialed media this weekend. It's something we don't take lightly, and we could not be happier to help bring some additional exposure to Jeff Gordon, Texas A&M Engineering, Texas Motor Speedway, and NASCAR.

It rained just enough before qualifying to get the track wet. Bring out the big guns to dry it off:

While I'm putting all of this together, in walks Tony Stewart:

Very classy.

Driving the maroon and white Axalta Coating Systems / Texas A&M School of Engineering Chevrolet, Jeff Gordon took to the track and turned out a lap of 28.112 seconds (192.089 mph) in the final round of qualifying to lock in his starting position for the Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway tomorrow.

In a somewhat fitting coincidence, Gordon will be starting 12th (just like we all scripted, right?).

Let's hope the rain holds off tomorrow afternoon. If not, we'll either be racing late tomorrow night or Monday. Either way, you know GBH will be here to bring you all the coverage.
