Jeff Gordon had a scary moment in Monday’s Pennsylvania 400 at Pocono when his seatbelts suddenly came unlatched, forcing the four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion to back off the gas as he approached Turn 1 and try to re-do them while driving.
Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time this has happened to Gordon. The 44-year old said he was one time leading the race at Pocono when his seatbelt came undone, however that was with a different belt mechanism that he managed to get re-latched quite easily. This time around, it takes some fiddling for the Hendrick Motorsports driver to get himself properly strapped back into the No. 88 Chevy.
The Pennsylvania 400 was re-scheduled for Monday due to heavy rain and ended 22-laps early under red flag conditions due to fog. The unique circumstances allowed Chris rookie Buescher to take his first-ever Sprint Cup win, with Gordon finishing 27th after a tough day.
