One of only 74 GM dealerships nationwide recognized for eco-friendly efforts
Jeff Gordon Chevrolet Named General Motors Green Dealer
One of only 74 GM dealerships nationwide recognized for eco-friendly efforts
WILMINGTON, NC February 4, 2017 – Jeff Gordon Chevrolet is showing customers its environmental credentials and was named a 2017 General Motors certified Green Dealer. According to the automaker, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet has a proven track record in areas such as energy reduction, renewable energy use, water conservation efforts, recycling, onsite nature habitats and community outreach.
Jeff Gordon Chevrolet is one of only 74 dealerships GM has certified since the Green Dealer program launched in 2014. Jeff Gordon Chevrolet has a number of green practices in place on site, including:
Energy efficient interior and exterior lighting
Recycling of packing materials, metals, and water
Use of low-toxic cleaning products
Energy Star equipment used throughout facility
Sponsor of Green Car Display in downtown Wilmington
Participation in community college’s Drive Electric Week and STEM Program
“Jeff Gordon Chevy considers its employees, customers, and the beautiful coastal community we’re fortunate to be a part of, all top priorities,” said Jacob Teets, General Sales Manager at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet. “By making little changes around our facility, recycling what we can, and upholding high standards in safety and disposal practices with chemicals, we’re both minimizing our impact on the environment and ensuring the safety of our team and customers. We take great pride in that so we plan to uphold and keep improving on it for as long as we’re in business.”
To apply for certification, dealerships complete a performance assessment that GM’s green dealer support team evaluates. The assessment covers 60 eco-friendly business practices across 10 categories. Dealerships must have a high percentage of these practices in place to earn certification. A dealer’s continuous improvement year after year will lead to ongoing annual recognition.
“GM has long been committed to being a leader in environmental stewardship, and we’re proud that our dealers share this commitment to serve and improve the communities where we work and live,” said Kurt McNeil, GM vice president of U.S. Sales Operations.
The Green Dealer program aligns with GM’s company-wide efforts to reduce its environmental footprint. GM designed the program to encourage dealers to implement green initiatives as part of their operations, create a network for sharing best practices and help other dealers begin or advance their sustainability journey.

Retired NASCAR Champion Will Sub for Dale Earnhardt Jr. for Next Two Races
As Dale Jr. recovers from concussion-like symptoms, Jeff Gordon will be stepping in to drive Earnhardt’s No. 88 car for Team Hendrick and the internet is freaking out. Jeff will get behind the wheel at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 24th and the Pocono Raceway on July 31st, 2016.
CONCORD, N.C. — Dale Earnhardt Jr., driver of the No. 88 Chevrolet SS for Hendrick Motorsports, has not been cleared by physicians to compete in at least the next two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events as he continues to recover from concussion-like symptoms. He will miss the races at Indianapolis Motor Speedway (July 24) and Pocono Raceway (July 31).
Four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon will be the team’s substitute driver at Indianapolis and Pocono. He most recently raced in the 2015 Sprint Cup season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Gordon, who grew up in Pittsboro, Indiana, ranks third all-time with 93 career victories in the series, including six at Pocono and five in the Brickyard 400 – both records.
Earnhardt underwent further evaluation Tuesday at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Sports Medicine Concussion Program. The driver said this week on his “The Dale Jr. Download” podcast that he has been experiencing issues with balance and nausea. He will not travel to Indianapolis or Pocono.
“Our focus is giving Dale all the time he needs to recover,” said Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports. “There’s nothing we want more than to see him back in the race car, but we’ll continue to listen to the doctors and follow their lead. What’s best for Dale is what’s best for Hendrick Motorsports and everyone involved with the team. We’re all proud of him and looking forward to having him racing soon.”
Gordon, 44, has made all 797 of his career Cup starts for car owner Hendrick. He competed in his 23rd and final full-time Sprint Cup Series season in 2015.
“Jeff’s a team player,” Hendrick said. “I know he’ll be ready, and I know Dale has incredible trust in him. It’s going to be an emotional weekend (at Indianapolis) with Dale not being there and seeing Jeff back behind the wheel. Greg (Ives) and the team did a great job at New Hampshire, and they have the full support of our organization.”
As his award-winning Chevrolet dealership in Wilmington, North Carolina, we can’t wait to see Jeff Gordon go back out there. Whether he’s driving his number 24 car or not, it’ll definitely be fun to watch him again.
