Jeff Gordon Chevrolet Launches Campaign In Support of Autism Awareness for Fourth Year

April 2nd was World Autism Awareness Day – a day where monuments and landmarks around the globe are lit up blue in support of the cause. Even though Jeff Gordon’s award-winning dealership in Wilmington is not (yet) considered a historic landmark, it will be joining the rest and lighting it up blue with its puzzle piece display, now up near South College Road! JGC Dealership 4-8-2019 Every night throughout the month of April, these pieces will be illuminated to show support for Autism Awareness and get the word out for the dealership’s annual fundraising campaign. If you’re local to the Chevy dealership and see the display, snap a pic (only if it’s safe!) and post it with the hashtag #JGCFamily so we can see it!

Jeff Gordon Chevy’s Annual Fundraising Campaign

For the fourth consecutive year, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet has pledged to donate $25 for every new and pre-owned vehicle sold throughout the month of April to Oasis NC – A local non-profit here in Wilmington, NC dedicated to providing Outstanding Autism Support & Instructional Services for individuals with autism spectrum disorder and their families.

Oasis NC use evidence-based practices and highly individualized services & support to target a broad range of educational, behavioral, social, and communication needs. Funds raised through Jeff Gordon Chevy’s Autism Awareness campaign will go towards supporting all of these helpful practices to its students.

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.  

Standing alongside Gordon for the 10th Class NASCAR Hall of Fame of inductees will be 1992 Cup Champion Alan Kulwicki, 19-time winner Davey Allison current team owners Jack Roush of Roush Fenway Racing and Roger Penske of Team Penske.

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”.

To kick off Gordon’s exciting week Sunday he was inducted into the National Motorsports Press Association Hall of Fame alongside Charles “Red” Farmer of 86 who is still racing today, in Charlotte, NC.

 

OFF THE TRACK

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.
