10:03 AM ET 08.04 | No one has more wins at Pocono Raceway than Jeff Gordon. No one has led more laps at Pocono than Jeff Gordon. And yet few consider Jeff Gordon a serious threat to win Sunday's GoBowling.com 400 or more importantly this season's Sprint Cup Series championship. Why is that? Perhaps it's because this season, more so than any other in recent memory, the trademark Gordon has carried throughout his NASCAR career -- consistency -- has eluded him. "This year has been a strange year for us. I feel like last year we showed a little bit more speed up to this point and I felt like all we needed were some breaks to go our way, and a few slight changes to get ourselves in (the Chase)," Gordon said. "This year we just can't seem to really get a hold of it."

Could it be the Gen6 car.....Jeffy has driven "real" cars for longer than most.

Could it be age? He's 42.

Could it be no Letarte?

Could it be always competing against Jimmie?

Could it be all his other interests?

Could it be all drivers have off years? Sometimes a couple of them.

In any case, too early to write off Jeffy just yet.

What's wrong with Jeff Gordon? No brainer -- he has a wife, a baby, and he's rich ... no more pushing the envelope
