DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) - Jeff Gordon's grown accustomed to change in NASCAR, especially at Darlington Raceway.

The four-time Sprint Cup series champion has won races at the track "Too Tough To Tame," in March, May, August and September and is ready for Darlington's latest schedule shift when the Southern 500 takes place April 12th.

Gordon says things are always changing in stock car racing and when Darlington holds its race does not matter - as long as he's lined up at the starting line.

Gordon is the series' active leader with seven victories at Darlington, trailing Hall of Famers David Pearson with 10 and the late Dale Earnhardt with nine.

Gordon visited the track Thursday, meeting fans purchasing tickets for next month's event and taking a prize-winner for a pace-car ride around Darlington.
