CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Four-time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon has
undergone a procedure on his back to help alleviate the pain he's
suffered from for more than a year.

Gordon says he had a facet block procedure on Monday. The
procedure typically calls for a physician to inject lidocaine and
or an anti-inflammatory medication into the back for relief.

Gordon says he was sore after the procedure, but will race this
weekend at Lowe's Motor Speedway.
