Wilmington, NC- NASCAR Hall of Fame Day is quickly approaching as we prepare for another exciting career achievement of our one and only Jeff Gordon. Gordon will be leading the pack in the 10th class of inductees into the NASCAR Hall of Fame on February 1st in Charlotte, NC. By racking up 96 percent of the possible votes Gordon has earned another stat as the highest vote-getter in NASCAR Hall of Fame history.
This celebratory weekend will be full of events and opportunities for fans to get close with the Hall of Famers. See the full list of events.
Gordon took NASCAR by storm in the 1990s being the youngest driver to win a premier series title in the modern era as a 24-year-old in 1995, going on to win three more championships (1997, ‘98, and 2001). His team was dubbed the Rainbow Warriors for their iconic colorful No. 24 Chevrolet that took a modern era-record of 13 wins in 1996. This record shattering team ranks third on the all-time wins list, and launched Gordon into a winning powerhouse with a total of 93 races, three Daytona 500s, four straight Southern 500s, and a record of five Brickyard 400s. Gordon also won 4 NASCAR Cup Series Championships 1995, 1997, 1998, 2001. With a record of 797 consecutive starts Gordon retired from full-time racing as the premier series “Iron Man”.
Aside from all of Gordon’s on track success he has continued to be a great face for the sport and for the causes he believes in with his Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation, an organization with efforts to support pediatric cancer research, treatment, and patient support.
Gordon currently delivers that same passion he shared on the track with NASCAR fans as an analyst for FOX Sports.

Let’s face it: Pets are family, and we want to make sure they always feel loved and appreciated. That’s why it’s important to pamper your cat around the house and take your dog on adventures outside of the house.
Many of our employees at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet are dog parents. According to them, these are the best places to take your dog in Wilmington:
Wilmington Dog Park at Empie: Dogs are social creatures, so it’s important to let them play with other dogs under your supervision at a dog park. The Wilmington Dog Park is a great place to do just that. Set on two acres, this off-leash park has two distinct play areas—one for large dogs and one for small dogs.
Abbey Nature Trail: Dogs love walks, especially in new places with exciting smells. Take your pooch out to Abbey Nature Trail along Highway 17 North. Set on 67 acres, this nature preserve offers up a 2.4-mile trail that takes you through the woods and over the mill pond.
Entropy Boat Rentals: Does your dog love to swim? Consider this unique experience with the pet-friendly Entropy Boat Rentals, where you can ferry your dog over to a pet-friendly beach.
For more suggestions on ways to keep your pet happy in Wilmington, contact us at Jeff Gordon Chevrolet. We’ll also be happy to recommend the top pet-friendly vehicles we have in our inventory if you’re in need of a new ride.

The Bowens have been relying on their 2004 Chevy Suburban to help them run their Whiteville, NC HVAC business since they purchased it from Jeff Gordon Chevrolet in 2003! They came back just a little over a decade later and left with this beauty – a diamond white 2015 Chevrolet Suburban! Looking good you two! Thanks for being loyal members of the #JGCFamily!
Update 7/21/15: We just received Zatha’s great review about her shopping experience at Jeff Gordon Chevy and her new Colorado!
As soon as I came on to the lot, Sharod immediately came to my assistance. He was receptive to what I were looking for and was able to quickly get the keys to a Colorado so I could test drive it. He was extremely knowledgable about the entire vehicle, and knew all of its capabilities extensively. After going home to think about the purchase, I decided to get the Colorado and came back the next day. On my way over Sharod informed me that it had already been sold, but he was able to arrange for me to meet with Ben to pay a deposit to secure one of the Colorado’s coming in the next shipment! Ben was also extremely helpful with the initial purchase process. Once the truck came in, Sharod was able to quickly finalize the purchase, efficiently get me through the paperwork process and hand over the keys. After the fact, Sharod capably arranged the truck bed liner and painting of the Chevy Bowties. I appreciate all the efforts of Scott, Nick, Ben and especially Sharod in making my first official vehicle purchase such an enjoyable and exciting experience!
