In his final full-time season back in 2015, career win No. 93 locked Jeff Gordon in to the Championship 4 in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.
Gordon, who described the win as “one of my finest moments I’ve ever had,” celebrated by climbing into the grandstands with fans.
“I don’t know what it feels like to be a rock star, but that’s as close as it can get,” Gordon said after his ninth career win at Martinsville. “That’s a rock star moment right there.”
