    He won but Earnhardt Jr came in third

    Gordon leads parade of Chevys at Martinsville
    April 13, 2003
    6:38 PM EDT (2238 GMT)




    MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Jeff Gordon nudged Bobby Labonte aside on the 487th lap Sunday, ending a long stretch of nose-to-tail frustration to win the Virginia 500. Gordon had been dueling Labonte since they broke free on a restart with 48 laps to go, but Labonte blocked his efforts to pass on both the inside and outside before Gordon finally moved him out of the way. The bump occurred as they entered the first turn, drawing a mixture of roars and boos from the crowd of 86,000. The race finished under caution, and Gordon earned his 62nd career Winston Cup victory and first this year. "Bobby and I were having a lot of fun there at the end, bumping and rubbing," Gordon said. "He was doing everything he could. I didn't want to knock him out of the way too hard, but I did push him around a little."

    After a caution ended with eight laps to go, Gordon easily pulled away from the field, proving he had the strongest car. The final caution came on the 499th lap. Labonte, who won this race last year, held on for second; a two-tire stop that gave him the lead with 63 laps to go paid off. "We held Jeff off as long as we could," Labonte said. "That was hard racing. That was good clean fun. ... All that racing was good."

    Dale Earnhardt Jr. led 195 laps and finished third, giving Chevrolet the top three spots in the field. Jeff Burton and Elliott Sadler were fourth and fifth, both in Fords, and series champion Tony Stewart was sixth in his Chevy. Exciting as it was, the ending was a disappointment to many in the crowd, who loudly cheered Earnhardt's dominance over the first 400 laps. But his chances at victory ended with 55 laps to go. Earnhardt was second to Labonte after pit stops, but he banged into the rear of the lapped car of Ricky Craven in Turns 1 and 2. Earnhardt's car got held up by Craven's Ford, and three contenders passed him by. "That was good racing right there, Earnhardt said. "We had a shot at it, but the 32 car had a flat tire and ran us up the race track, but there wasn't anything we could do about it. It's going to help us a lot in the points and give us something to talk about in the weekend off coming up."

    Earnhardt's finish allowed him to trim 78 points off Matt Kenseth's lead in the standings. He's now 51 back, and Gordon is third, 88 off the lead.

    Kenseth, who was lapped by Gordon on the 61st lap, finished 22nd.

    Rounding out the top 10, Sterling Marlin finished seventh, followed by Rusty Wallace, Jimmie Johnson and Ken Schrader.

    Hey the kid is doing great on his own, he isn't just riding his dad's coattails, he is going to be a dominant force on the circuit for some time. He is doing a great job of justifying his ride with DEI, not just cause he is the son, but cause he is winning too.

    oh no, not mad at all, was just commenting on Jr with all the controversy that surrounds him. Been some bizzare accusations of NASCAR fixing races so that he wins and stuff. Gordon went through some of the same mudslinging in his early days too.

    well, when you're good, you're good. seems like there's always someone trying to make accusations against the guy who wins a lot. jealousy, i think. i remember when gordon was always getting accused of cheating, unfair driving, etc. then it was stewart, and now it's earnhardt jr.
    i think a lot of people just believe that he is where he is right now because sr. died. looks to me like he is standing on his own two feet. good for him.

    I was(and still am) a real big Senior fan. When he died I didn't just go start rooting for Jr just cause he was the son. He had to prove to me that he was a worthy driver in his own right and not just cashing in on the name. Granted he has great equiptment(far better than what brother Kerry seems to have right now even with Bradshaw being part owner) but its more than that to be a winning team, you have to know how to drive and drive good. Jr has shown that he is going to be on par with his dad in that respect.
