Summary

Driving at speeds of more than two hundred miles an hour, Jeff Gordon thrills racing fans with his spectacular driving. One of the youngest and winningest racers in history, Gordon started driving when he was just four years old. He joined NASCAR's Winston Cup circuit and was rookie of the year in 1993. In 1995 he won his first Winston Cup points title and became the youngest champion to do so. Aggressive and bold while he's racing, Gordon is a serious, soft-spoken man who uses his sport's popularity to help promote charities and educational programs for kids. He is a role model whose simple message to kids is, "Don't ever quit." Book jacket.
