This 10-episode series tells the inside story of one of the greatest drivers in NASCAR history, a Hall of Fame career and his influence on the sport we see today. From his California roots, the moves to Indianapolis and Charlotte, his time with fellow NASCAR Hall of Famer Ray Evernham, the rivalries and his on-going legacy, this podcast covers it all.
“When Jeff Gordon burst onto the NASCAR scene the establishment was not quite sure what to think.” said Chris Schwartz, President of Motor Racing Network. “This podcast series highlights the iconic wins and the four championships, but also his impact on the sport and the many contributions that are not widely recognized that paved his way into the NASCAR Hall of Fame.”
