Let the questions start. Jeff Gordon had once made comments he didn’t want to race forever. Now that will be put to the test. Gordon’s crew chief Steve Letarte has reportedly signed an extension that will pay him thru the 2014 season.

Letarte has been the crew cheif of the #24 Dupont Chevy since September 2005 and in 2007 helped Gordon to 6 wins, the most Gordon had in a season dating back to 2001.

The concerns about the status of Gordon’s back have died down this year and despite the team not winning since Texas last season they have played bridesmaid and nearly won on multiple occasions.

So will Letarte still be on the pit box of Gordon in 2014? Let the questions begin.
