Sassi Mobile Car Care Directories said Jeff Gordon has accomplished much in his two-decade career in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series: four championships, 88 career-wins, three Daytona 500 wins, four Brickyard 400 victories, and career-earnings nearing $140 million.
Yet there is one thing Gordon wants to accomplish before hanging up his helmet for good, becoming a Sprint Cup Series champion.
While he may be a four-time champion, Gordon’s four titles came under the Winston Cup banner — something he wants to change in a bad way.
“I’ve never won a Sprint Cup,” he said Wednesday at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. “I get called a four-time Sprint Cup champion all the time, but I don’t think of myself as that. When I walk into the shop, when I walk into the room at my home where the trophies are displayed, I see four Winston Cup trophies up there. I’m very proud of those, but there’s not a Sprint Cup.
“It’s not just the trophy, it’s the format and the competition,” he added.
In addition to the reward of finally earning that Sprint Cup trophy, Gordon says having his wife, Ingrid, and their two children experience a championship season would be “as good as it could possibly get.” more info at http://msn.foxsports.com/nascar/story/jeff-gordon-not-ready-for-retirement-wants-to-be-sprint-cup-champ-050714
