Summary

Summary

In a sport in which athletes compete into their forties, Jeff Gordon, only 27, will be around for a long time. Considered by many to be the best race car driver alive, he dominates his sport in much the same way that Michael Jordan dominated basketball. He has won three NASCAR championships and has had 40 wins in four years. Although he has won over $26 million, Jeff has been involved in, and gives most of his money to, charity events. Also active in educational programs for children, Jeff uses his sport's popularity to teach kids. He is a role model whose simple mantra, "Don't ever quit" sends an important message to kids.
