If Jeff Gordon is to earn his way into NASCAR’s post season he will do so with a special “Drive to End Hunger” paint scheme on his No. 24 Chevrolet.
Gordon will start on the pole for Saturday nights race, the 73rd pole of his career.
September is Feeding America’s “Hunger Action Month.” and the sponsor of Gordon is hoping to create just that with a modified scheme at Richmond.
Gordon is winless thus far in 2013 but has two wins at Richmond. Gordon’s last Richmond win came in 2000 but there is good news for Gordon fans. Gordon has recorded a finish of tenth or better 10 times in 13 races since the spring race in 2007. He was 11th at Richmond earlier this year.
