Jeff Gordon continues to hold his leader position in the NASCAR standings after winning the Dodge Avenger 500 yesterday at Darlington.

NASCAR: Jeff Gordon wins the Dodge Avenger 500 at DarlingtonGordon is so far the leader with 1881 points followed by Jimmie Johnson who is 231 points behind. Jeff Gordon took a gamble at Darlington and won thanks to a few late cautions, after his water temperature went through the roof. But the gamble paid off, despite finishing in a cloud of steam due to overheating, and he managed to lead the last 22 laps, which were his only leading laps for the race in South Carolina. Some believe that it was a pure luck that the engine held on to the finish, giving Gordon his third victory for the year. Gordon had the favorite 7/2 betting odds to win the Darlington race, the same as Jimmie Johnson.

Chevrolet dominated, and completed a sweep of the top-three positions with Gordon, Hamlin and Johnson at the Darlington Raceway.

The race was previously postponed for Sunday, due to rain at Darlington, SC. Next NASCAR race, Nextel Open, is on the 19th at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Concord, NC. Odds for the next race have not been published yet.
