Yeah! Yeah! Get some! Get some!
Somebody see what the temperature is in hell today. Jeff Gordon finally won a race this season, capturing the checkered flag at the Dodge/Save Mart 250 yesterday. The victory, the 74th of his career, puts him two wins away from tying the late, great Dale Earnhardt, and firmly cements him as the best road course driver in NASCAR history.
The victory propelled the #24 back into the top ten in the overall point standings, on the eve of the Pepsi 400 at Daytona.
It was a pretty good weekend for Gordon, who proposed to his girlfriend Ingrid Vandebosch (below) on Friday.
I want to be a race car driver when I grow up.
