Jeff Gordon, a four-time NASCAR champion, had gone 47 races without a pole -- the longest drought of his career. All it took was a trip to top sponsor DuPont's backyard to put the driver back on top. Gordon took the top spot for Sunday's Dover 400 with a fast lap of 156.162 mph Friday at Dover, Del. It's his first pole since Aug. 24, 2005, on the road course at Sonoma, Calif. "It feels like my first pole ever," Gordon said.
