NASCAR’s 4th winningest driver, with 93 wins and 4 Nascar Championships
The winner of four NASCAR Cup Series championships in a seven-year span, Jeff Gordon helped transform auto racing into a mainstream American sport.
Born on August 4, 1971, in Vallejo, California, Jeff Gordon began competitive auto racing at age five. He notched four Series Cup championships after joining NASCAR’s top circuit in 1992, his popularity helping to expand the sport’s appeal to a mainstream audience. Among NASCAR’s all-time leaders in victories, Gordon announced he was stepping down as a full-time driver in early 2015.
