Turns 1 through 8 of the original 3.1-mile road course are used for the new circuit.
A road course was built for the Formula one race.
This project involved building a road course inside the oval.
In 2008, the road course was changed to add another infield section.
"It used to be you didn't focus on a road course," Gordon said.
The schedule included a road course for the first time since 1970.
This race is the second and final road course on the 2008 schedule.
He also tested the car earlier this month on a road course in Virginia.
In 2008 the series returned to racing on a road course.
"On the road courses, he's going to do a great job."
