According to Jeff Gordon had this to say in Victory Lane:

“God, it feels so amazing,” the four-time Cup champion said. “I can’t tell you how amazing this feels. So thankful to [owner] Rick Hendrick, all that he does. It’s been a long time, I know. I’m going to savor this one so much, but I’ve got to say thanks to the fans.

“I mean not only the fans at home — I’ve been tweeting lately for the first time and all of the stuff that people have been saying, the motivation has been unbelievably inspiring. And then to see that crowd stick around to see my really lame burnout, because I stink at them, but they love that show. Man, we hope we can give them some more shows like that this year.”
