FORT WORTH, Texas — Jeff Gordon acknowledges that most of his answers will be similar when asked about his championship chances, usually along the lines of wait and see what happens.Gordon is just glad the tone of the questions has changed with three races left in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship."Man, the thing is, I love just the fact that we're in the conversation right now," Gordon said Friday. " I'm just excited that we're not talking about me retiring and what changes need to happen to our team. I mean, you've got to understand those are the conversations and questions I've been getting asked most of the season and I understand. Our results and our stats have not been good enough to have any other questions be asked."Gordon has certainly made the most of getting an unprecedented 13th spot in the Chase.
