Retired NASCAR great Gordon has Le Mans in mind
By: Lewis Franck
Jeff Gordon, one of the greatest NASCAR drivers of all-time, may be recently retired but has not given up on the idea of one day competing in the Le Mans 24 Hours sportscar race.
Last year marked the final full-time season on the premier stock car circuit for the three-time Daytona 500 champion but the 44-year-old Gordon is still open to the idea of getting back behind the wheel of a race car.
"I've always said that if the right opportunity came along I would like to," Gordon, who will be a member of Fox's broadcast team for Sunday's Daytona 500, told Reuters. "When it comes to competing and racing I don't take it for granted of what it takes to be competitive."
