Jeff Gordon is to NASCAR racing what Wayne Gretzky was to NHL hockey—simply the best young athlete in his sport. He was NASCAR’s Rookie of the Year in 1993 and has won the 1995, 1997, and 1998 Winston Cup championships. He has won 52 races since 1994, including the Daytona 500 and the Brickyard 400.
