Racing career

Early career

Jeff Gordon began racing at the age of five racing quarter midgets. In fact, the Roy Hayer Memorial Race Track (Previously the CrackerJack Track) in Rio Linda, California is noted as the first track Gordon ever competed on. [1] Supporting his career choice, Gordon's family moved from Vallejo, California to Pittsboro, Indiana, where there were more opportunities for younger racers. Before the age of 18, Gordon had already won three short-track races and was awarded USAC Midget Car Racing Rookie of the Year in 1989. The next year Gordon won the USAC Midget title. In 1991, Gordon moved up to the USAC Silver Crown and at the age of 20 became the youngest driver to win the title.

Gordon then went on to spend two successful years in the Busch Series in 1991 and 1992, driving for Bill Davis Racing (with whom he set a NASCAR record by capturing 11 poles in one season) with Ray Evernham as his crew chief. He was sponsored by Carolina Ford Dealers in 1991 and Baby Ruth in 1992. Coincidentally, Gordon's first NASCAR Winston Cup Series race, the 1992 Hooters 500 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, was also the final race for Richard Petty. He went on to finish 31st, crashing after 164 laps of competition. Most recent champion(s) Kevin Harvick The NASCAR Busch Series is a stock car racing series owned and operated by NASCAR.

Winston Cup career

In 1993, Gordon raced his first full season in Winston Cup for Hendrick Motorsports, in which he won a Daytona 500 qualifying race, the Rookie of the Year award, and finished 14th in points. Ray Evernham was placed as Jeff Gordon's first crew chief. Gordon's success in the sport reshaped the paradigm and eventually gave younger drivers an opportunity to compete in NASCAR. However, during the 1993 season, many doubted Gordon's ability to compete at such a level at such a young age because of his tendency to push the cars too hard and crash.

In 1994, Gordon collected his first career victory at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Coca Cola 600, NASCAR's longest and most demanding race. Additionally, Gordon scored a popular hometown victory at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the inaugural Brickyard 400, passing Ernie Irvan for the lead late in the race when Irvan cut down a tire.

1995 saw Jeff Gordon win his first NASCAR Winston Cup Championship. He won it by battling 7-time and defending champ, Dale Earnhardt into the final race of the season. Many see this as a symbolic passing of the torch, as Gordon collected his first championship the year after Earnhardt won his seventh and final championship. Earnhardt had previously won his first championship in 1980, the year after Richard Petty won his seventh and final championship.


Gordon got off to a rocky start in 1996, but rebounded to win ten races. However, he finished 2nd to teammate Terry Labonte for the championship.


Jeff Gordon won his first Daytona 500 in 1997. After also winning the Coca-Cola 600 in Charlotte that year, Gordon had a chance to become the first man since Bill Elliott in 1985 to win what was then dubbed the "Winston Million," by winning three of the four "grand slam" events of the NASCAR season. Gordon completed the feat by holding off a determined Jeff Burton in the final laps of the Southern 500 at Darlington. While Elliott failed to win the Winston Cup in 1985, Jeff Gordon claimed his second Winston Cup championship in 1997, completing one of the most impressive single-season performances in NASCAR history.

In 1998 Gordon successfully defended his victories in the Coca-Cola 600 and the Southern 500, winning a record four consecutive Southern 500s in the process. Gordon also won his second Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis, a race which, for most NASCAR drivers, has become second in prestige only to the Daytona 500. Gordon finished the 1998 season with a victory in the season finale at Atlanta, which was his 13th victory of the season. He claimed his third Winston Cup championship and tied Richard Petty's modern era record of 13 wins in a single season.


In 1999, Gordon along with crew chief Evernham formed Gordon/Evernham Motorsports. Though short lived, the race team enjoyed success. The co-owned team received a full sponsorship from Pepsi and ran six races with Jeff Gordon as driver and Ray Evernham as crew chief in the NASCAR Busch Series. GEM only survived one year as Evernham was pulled away by Dodge. Jeff Gordon extended his Busch experiment one more year, through 2000 as co-owner, with Rick Hendrick buying Evernham's half. After the departure of Evernham, the race team was renamed JG Motorsports. It has been suggested that JG Motorsports be merged into this article or section. ... Pepsi Cola is a non-alcoholic carbonated beverage produced and manufactured by PepsiCo. ... JG Motorsports was the Jeff Gordon/Rick Hendrick co-owned race team that evolved from Gordon/Evernham Motorsports and attempted 20 races in the NASCAR Busch Series in the year 2000. ...


For the fifth straight season, Jeff Gordon won more races than any other driver (7), including his second Daytona 500 victory in 1999, but inconsistency relegated the 24 team to a 6th place finish in the championship standings.


Many people questioned Jeff Gordon's ability to win championships without longtime crew chief, Ray Evernham, especially after Gordon struggled to a 9th place points finish in 2000, winning only three races. Gordon answered those challenges in 2001 by winning 6 races en route to his 4th Winston Cup championship. Jeff Gordon became the third driver to win four Cup championships in NASCAR history, behind Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt, who are tied at seven apiece.


NEXTEL Cup career

Gordon won the Brickyard 400 in August of 2004, obtaining his 4th Indy win. He has claimed wins at the famed raceway in 1994, 1998, and 2001. He is the only NASCAR driver with four Brickyard 400 victories at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and one of only five drivers to have four victories at the historic track. He finished 3rd in the 2004 NEXTEL Cup points standing behind Kurt Busch and teammate Jimmie Johnson even though he scored the most total points throughout the whole season, a consequence of the new Chase system implemented in 2004.

Gordon started the 2005 season with a win in the Daytona 500, but inconsistency would plague him throughout the year. A late season (notably top 10s at Indy and Bristol) run put him in position to qualify for the Chase, but in the last race before the Chase at Richmond, Gordon made contact with the wall and failed to qualify for the chase. Despite this disappointment, on October 23 Gordon won the Subway 500 at Martinsville Speedway, his first win in 22 points races, and his 7th career victory at the 0.526 mile track, which leads all active drivers at the facility. He went on to finish 11th in the Championship and received a $1,000,000 bonus as the top driver finishing outside the Chase. It was Gordon's first time outside the top 10 in the point standings since 1993.

On September 14, 2005 Crew Chief Robbie Loomis resigned from the #24 team. Loomis stayed on with Hendrick Motorsports as a consultant for Jimmie Johnson's #48 team through the Chase for The NEXTEL Cup in 2005.

Gordon started the 2007 Cup season off by winning his Gatorade Duel qualifying race. Due to a rear shock bolt breaking during the race on his car, he failed the post-race inspection which found that the rear of his car was too low and, as a result, had to start 42nd in the 2007 Daytona 500. He went on to finish 10th in the race despite being involved in a crash during a spectacular last-lap finish.

On March 23, 2007, Gordon won his 58th career pole for the 2007 Food City 500 at Bristol, the first race for the Car of Tomorrow. He went on to a 3rd place in the race, which gave him the points lead for the first time since the 2005 Daytona 500. At Texas Motor Speedway, Gordon started on the pole because qualifying was rained out. He led the most laps before brushing the wall coming out of turn 4 and finishing 4th.[4]. On April 19, 2007 at Phoenix International Raceway, Gordon won the pole, and tied Darrell Waltrip's modern day record of 59 career poles. Two days later, at the Subway Fresh Fit 500, he won, ending a streak of 21 races of non-pole winners at PIR. He has now won a Cup race at all but two NASCAR racetracks (Texas Motor Speedway and Homestead-Miami Speedway). With the win, he also tied Dale Earnhardt for 6th all time in overall number of NASCAR NEXTEL Cup series wins (second in the modern era).

Jeff Gordon Online (908 words)
Gordon's car was deemed close to an inch too low, according to NASCAR officials, due to the fact that a bolt on the shock fastener was misaligned by the raceteam.
Gordon had reported a push in turns one and two, and then, more ominously, a loud pop as he downshifted when the yellow flag came out.
