Gordon happy NASCAR an old spoiler sport again

Jeff Gordon's prospects go up with spoiler, James Hinchcliffe wins, and Lewis Hilton's unpunished antics get ink in my latest column in the Globe and Mail:

Watch out for Jeff Gordon for the rest of the NASCAR Sprint Cup season.

After not having much luck with the Car of Tomorrow's wing, the four-time champion will be looking to regain old form as the Sprint Cup gets back to racing on faster tracks with the old-style spoiler back on the car.

Simply put, Gordon struggled in the wing era, taking only two wins in the 93 races it was bolted to his car. With a spoiler, Gordon won 80 times in 493 starts -- roughly once every sixth race -- and took four titles.
