Sport Cards Daily would like to wish a Happy 49th Birthday to the one and only Jeff Gordon. Gordon is one of the most well known and loved racers in the history of NASCAR. He’s also one of the best drivers of All-time ranking third in Wins overall (93) and first in the modern era (1972 to the present).
Gordon gained almost instant celebrity status in the sport and was a fan favorite due to his brightly colored rainbow paint schemes in his DuPont #24 Car. This led to his famous nickname “The Rainbow Warrior.”
After his racing career ended, he has transitioned into the broadcast booth, becoming Fox’s Lead Analyst for their coverage of NASCAR. He signed a multiyear contract extension that will keep him involved with the race day experience for the foreseeable future.
