Jeff Gordon had a knack for pinpointing the unprotected wall when the No. 24 crashed.
His car was shot.
Gordon rarely was.
Sure, he bruised his ribs in 1999 at Texas Motor Speedway. He had a minor headache when the car lost its brakes, sliced through the grass and mud and slammed the wall in 2006 at Pocono Raceway. His 2008 wreck at Las Vegas tore the radiator out of the car and left it a mangled mess.
