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.

The North American International Auto Show revealed both the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and C7.R this morning. Conveniently, for anyone who wasn’t able to be in Detroit for the live reveal, the show was streamed live on YouTube.
The new Z06 was escorted to the Auto Show from Chevrolet’s tech center, hauled by the 2014 Silverado, and followed by thirty 2014 Corvette Stingrays.
The Z06 (production model) and C7.R (race car) were developed side-by-side and don’t differ from each other very much. Both models were designed to provide the best possible handling – whether you’re on the road or on the track. The Z06 is powered by a super-charged 6.2L LT4 engine that produces better than 625 horsepower and more than 635 pounds-feet of torque. It’s the only production car in America with more than 600 HP and a choice of two transmissions:
7-speed manual with active rev matching
all-new, high-performance 8-speed automatic (designed and built by GM) with pedal shift manual controls and lightning-fast shifts for track use and the convenience of a true automatic for daily driving – making the automatic transmission truly an option without compromise
The Z06 also features a lot of the same features as the Stingray like: magnetic ride control, electronic limited slip differential, 5-mode drive selector, and the new performance data recorder. The Z06 has an all-aluminum frame that is 60% stiffer than the frame in the outgoing model and also has a removable carbon-fiber roof panel.
The C7.R will make its debut later this month at the Rolex 24 at Daytona where Corvette Racing expects to keep tradition going and continue to be the most successful endurance racing program in American Le Mans history. Over the past 14 seasons, Corvette Racing has won 90 races, 10 manufacturer championships and 10 team championships in the American Le Mans series.
To add to the excitement of this morning’s reveal, journalists also announced the 2014 Corvette Stingray as North American Car of the Year and the 2014 Silverado 1500 as the North American Truck of the Year. Not too shabby.
And now for the bad news… The Z06 won’t be available for delivery until later this year. However, stay tuned for updates on pre-ordering, or fill out the contact form below and we can send you updates personally.
